In the Brooder

I just read the reviews of the Storey's Guide to Turkeys and not sure if it is the book for me. I want to know more about them and their behavior. I have 2 turkeys right now. I believe I have a Bourbon Red tom and a Narragansett hen. Do the toms always stay puffed out? Ours are around 6 months old and Red puffs and will gobble and drum. Nargy just walks around and sometimes will halfheartedly try to puff up, but no gobbling at all. And no paintbrush like thing on her chest either. I am just fascinated with these birds and could watch them all day. They are both friendly, hope they stay that way. Any advice or site you could point me to would be great! Just want to learn as much as I can.
