    I'm new to raising turkeys, and only have one at the moment. He is a male about 7 months old, and seems to be full grown. He seems to always be puffed up like a male turkey in pictures, and I was unsure if he will just naturally be like this all the time now that he is mature, or if he is sick. Any info is great!

    awesome! so it's normal for him to be like that like almost every time I see him? because it used to be occasional but now it's constantly...
