What if it's a gobble-no-show?

    Hi!
    I have 3 Turkeys-2 male Broad Breasted Bronze & 1 female Broad Breasted White- that are about 2-2 1/2 feet high.
    I wonder....WHEN WILL THEY START GOBBLING?
    They are about 17 weeks old. No gobble yet. When will it come? :)
    Thanks!

    Are you sure they are males? I find standing around making various noises and calls can always get most young toms to start gobbling.

    I've never had a female gobble. I have had them display.
