    I noticed this tonight. These BR are 2 months old, and tonight I watched them all puff up, spread tails and stretch necks out, not fully but obviously out. Not strutting as there was no wing dragging and the tails were parallel to the ground. All 3 were doing it. Any thoughts on what this means? Just a "I don't know what THAT is, better look real big in case it's hungry"? The other turkey who is 2 weeks older didn't pay any attention to them and wasn't doing the "puff". He was more concerned with eating.

    Thanks! So they just found something (noise /fence /bird flying overhead) that triggered the response.
