I got to watch a group of turkeys almost day while working yesterday. It started out with 11 and, as far as I could tell, they were all bearded. By 2:00 PM it was up to 15 and fights were starting to break out. It was funny watching them run to the ones fighting. By 6:00 PM only 7 were left. I don't think they ever gobbled and they for sure didn't strut any, that I saw anyway. They're acting a lot different than they were this time last year.
