    I've only seen Ataturk do this twice in the past ten months. Has anyone else had a turkey do this?

  8. The first time I saw this I was totally amazed. I did not know the toms could do sooo much with the skin on their face, beak and neck.

    I can't say that I have seen their head red and blue in a straight line like that before. There head does change all different shades of blue and red though. Your tom looks great. Thanks for the photos
