I've got two young Narragansett turkeys hatched mid April. They both make a 'nork-nork-nork' and a 'bic' sound but I haven't heard any kind of gobbling yet. Hubby says when one is distressed the other struts a bit but I haven't seen it myself except once when I was holding the smaller of the two the other puffed up a bit, but it didn't look like a 'real' strut.

thoughts? I'd like to have a pair or 2 hens ideally. a friend's got some Narragansetts that hatched about the same time, she says the boys strut all the time, so that's why I'm wondering.

pic taken today, they are just under 4 months old.

I can't tell too much by the pic, but my three-month-old Bourbon Red jake has more of a snood growing than it looks like yours do. Possibly two jennys (hens).
