Figured that instead of horning in on CatJane0x0's "B White turkey -- lady or man?" thread, I should post my own. This is Rhonda... or is it Rodney? (it's difficult to photograph someone who's obsessed with shiny things, because mostly what you get is this...) Rhonda is 3 months old. She's a pet and I've never had a turkey before, so I don't know which of her behaviours are sex-specific, which are just turkey stuff, and which are just personal quirks. -- She's lively and curious and bossy and excitable. -- She vocalises a lot (almost constantly, as far as I can tell, but that might just be because I'm there to hear it): mostly a relatively quiet and fairly melodic warbling-muttering noise, with the occasional *pop!*/*bink!* when she's excited by something. -- She fans and struts a little when she's trying to boss the goose around or when the wild pigeons are mobbing her food. -- When a 12 year old friend of mine visits wearing a red shirt she puffs all of her feathers up, turns bright red, and starts advancing on him... but is never actually aggressive. -- The closest she gets to aggression (towards people) is that she gets very excitable and pecky around shiny things or when I'm trying to weed the garden (she gets really hyper and starts grabbing at my hands and wrists), but it's clear that it's excitement and not aggression. -- She usurped the goose's nest site to use as a dust-bath and daytime hang-out. -- She pulled all of the feathers out of the back of the goose's neck. -- She won't roost undercover at night. -- Her head and neck go an astonishing variety of colours and combinations of colours depending on her mood. -- She's growing a beard. So is this Rhonda? Rodney? Or is it still too early to tell?
