    My turkeys are almost 5 months old and have just started to make a few feeble attempts at gobbling. Is a small beard starting to grow from his above his breast?

    My experience is when they start to gobble you cant shut them up try to have a conversation around 5 or 6 Toms they keep butting in [​IMG]

    Do domesticated Toms gobble year round, or only during breeding season like wild turkeys do??

    if its only during mating season, then my BBB tom must think its always that season - cuz he's gobbling now once the sun comes up until it goes down.
