    Quote:He is a nice lookin young Tom. Good luck on the obedience training! They also love shinning things - rings, zippers, etc.

    Sharon,

    Yeah, turkeys are the worst for noticing ornaments! I have two sweetgrass girls the same age as my black mottled. The three stooges give me a run for my money every day, but they are also hilarious.

    I think he is just so nice looking.
    At first glance I thought he was a wild turkey.Didnt know they come in that color.. He is gorgeous .

    I love their saggy skin under their chin.Its so soft and warm..lol
