Isn't he a bit young for this?

    Seriously. He gobbled yesterday--twice in 15 minutes!!! [​IMG] He's just barely reaching the four week mark now. Of course he's doing the strut and all that now too.
    What happened to my baby?

    My chocolates are 3 weeks and one is doing the strutting and kind of hissing now. So funny to see that little one strutting.

    i have 1 little bronzish one that started strutting around 3 days old, cutest and funniest thing ever! he did it more then then he does now, i've heard a few attemps at gobbles i think but they sounded more like throw up/hairball haha.

    It really was funny to hear and see. He looked at me like, "What was that? Did that come from me?". I haven't hear him do it since then, but probably just because I haven't been there at the right time.
    It is SO funny to watch him puff up his chest and back and display the his rather scruffy "adolescent" tail feathers.
