    My Tom just made his first Gobble noise today! He is just under 2 months old and he has been strutting around a lot lately.

    At first, I thought it might have been some of the wild turkeys out in the woods but I found him in the hay loft strutting around by himself and I heard him gobble while I was standing there looking at him.

    I am so excited! My babies are growing up!

    Take care,

    Tami

    Tami.....I know the feeling. I have Royal Palms...a tom and a hen. My tom has gobbles a few times. I just love seeing him "posture" fanning his tail feathers, fluffing his back feathers....I think I am in love with this guy! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have five turkeys. Four are at least 12 weeks old none of them have gobbled yet, hopefully at least one is a Tom.
