    My Sweetgrass jake, Griffin, has been gobbling for a long time now. He's getting pretty good at it, and now does it pretty much non-stop.
    But today, he started drumming. He drums at the same time that he gobbles, and it sounds really cool.
    So I know why he does it. Hens just love drummers [​IMG]
    But how does he do it? It's weird because it's like he's gobbling, and drumming in the background. How is he doing both at once?

    They puff their chests up with air, try touching him while he's puffed up, the sound has something to do with the air in his chest.
