    You know, I always think a bird needs company, whether it's a chicken or a turkey. Get him some girlfriends! [​IMG]

    I think he would love you even more if you got him a girlfriend. [​IMG]

    He'd probably strut more if you got him a girlfriend and a competitor. Get two friends, and if there both girls, he'll be really happy. If one's a tom, he'll still like the hen and the displaying could be real fun for you, too.
