    I know there are many folks on this site who adore their toms but tell me are you not bothered by his gobbling?
    Franklin, my one-year tom has become a big singer and frankly, it is annoying! Trudy, his mate also gets pretty vocal when she "greets" me or other people. Her talk is more of a high pitched, ear shattering bark.
    Will these guys calm down with age or am I in for a noisy back yard?

    once spring is over, they'll tone it down some, but for the next 2-3 months, its gonna be nonstop.

    Just get some peacocks and you won't notice the turkey noise.

    You guys are funny! I dare say one gobbler is plenty! In fact he has enough gobbles for a dozen of his kind - he is going nonstop as I'm tying this.
    Off to a noisy spring!

    Ive grown to despise the sound of my guinea flock. Every time i go down to feed i envision lopping their heads off and feasting on roasted guinea.
