Do hen turkeys make gobble noises?

    I just heard the cutest little gobble out of one of my turkey poults. They are about 2-3 months old and when I went to feed them one of them was doing the baby gobble. It was so darn cute. But I am wondering do hens make noises? Could this have been a hen gobbling?

    Hens will sometimes strut, but they do not gobble.

    I have heard hens try to imitate a gobble a few times but they are not good at it at all and no way you will mistake a hen for a tom if you hear one gobble. I would say you got a little tom that is finding his voice.
