    Sorry this is kind of off topic but what kind of door do you have there held shut with a long piece of wood?

    One jake and a passel of jennies? Well, they are old enough that if you whistle them a tune or make some other `obnoxious' (to a turkey) noise, any jakes should be complaining with proto-gobbles.

    Great bunch!

    The door goes into a large room for them to fly around and play in. The room they are in right now is where they eat and sleep, and get warm under the heatlamp. I have the door closed at night so they stay warm. I will take a pic soon of the other room. I am also making an outdoor pen for them to play in. I don't let them go free range at this time because they are still young, and I also want them to get use to their new home.

    I was thinking the same thing about the one Tom, one of them has a lot of black on its back, the others have more white. I have a turkey gobbler here somewhere that I use for hunting, I will see if there is any answer to the gobble

    My RP had caruncles by 3 1/2 months. I don't see anything on yours. Which one do you all think is a tom?
