    I am raising one Male turkey,for a pet/to bring in wild turkeys to my area to watch and feed.

    He is only 14-15 weeks old,when should i hear him start to try to gobble?

    Daddy tom was well over 6 mos. before he started gobbling, but I've heard of them starting younger. They mostly start gobbling when they're mature enough to mate. I have one that's about 8 weeks old that tried the other day, and the sound he made was hilarious![​IMG]
