    At what age do turkeys start to gobble. Ours are 3 months old and he hasn't gobbled yet. He just clucks or putts. Just wondering.

    Mine may do it earlier, if the kids are out in the yard fighting or screaming. But their gobbles lack that "certain something" until they are older.

    Mine are 15 weeks now and they started gobbling a couple weeks ago, but like previous poster only when startled if i gobble at him he will gobble, but i think its because he is startled and it doesnt have a real deep tone yet but getting better.
