    So one of my female BBB passed away last week :( It was very sad, as I found her and she was my best buddy, I will never forget that moment:( Now I have just one BBB hen left. At first she didnt seem lonely, although now she is acting weird. She is strutting and showing off all the time, and not even showing off to anything really, i have seen her do it to the window in her coop and well as just to a board leaning against the wall. She is constantly red and makings noises that kind of sound like a gobble but not really? she walks around constantly "puffed " and her snood seems to have got thicker? and a bit longer over just a couple days. Do I have a gender confused turkey? or just a very dominant female? Any help or insite would be great thankyou!!!

    I will share a picture when I get one on this computer. But last time I posted a picture here, everyone said she was a female.

    If I remember correctly, all 3 looked like females from the pics you posted..... just wondering what she looks like when acting like a Tom....lol. Besides, I do believe we all love seeing pics of our feathered friends.... :)
