    I got my 1st gobble from my 3 month old tom yesterday [​IMG] It was high pitch, but deffinetly a gobble. Almost every time my chickens would crow he would gobble.

    Wait til he really gets going! He will gobble at every noise he hears, even if you sneeze or cough.

    I have the most docile Tom ever! He never presents or struts and the only time I've ever heard him gobble was when I was using the powerdrill/screwdriver to replace wire on a rabbit hutch right behind their cage--probably twenty feet. Everytime the drill started he would gobble. I haven't found anything else yet that alerts him haha. They're about 3 to 3 1/2 months old so maybe he just isn't old enough to be manly yet. I can't wait until he starts gobbling all the time!
