    I'm pretty sure it's normal, but it just looks so different that his normal red throat color. THis morning he was out strutting and doing his 'pffffft' thing to really try to impress all the chickens - and he's never done the 'pfffft' before - so i'm wondering if this new throat color and behavior are all just normal turkey maturation. is my young guy getting all grown up?

    I know this is an old thread but yes it is all very normal. You'll see the neck change color frequently. How did you do with this guy btw? Were you raising to process or raising for pet?
