    My young ones don't gobble unless I sit and make noises to excite them, they are a bit over 3 months. Another month or so and they will be gobbling a lot.

    I have some 8 week old Narragansett poults. They are already doing a "pre puberty" gobble. Kinda funny to hear.

    My neighbors Tom gobbled for the first time the other day when I was at his house. He's 3 1/2 months old. Mine is 4 months with no gobble. Sigh. I tried playing YouTube for him and he freaked out running all over and pecking the other turkey (female). I'm questioning his gender. Lol
