These days, I usually get a flock of twenty some birds in the yard at some point during the day. More often than not, two gobblers come in full strut. They are always side by side and either one or both are fanned out. They often walk in lock step with each other. The weird part is, all the other birds, including some larger gobblers completely ignore them. The "strutter brothers" dont seem to challenge the bigger birds (they'll let big gobblers walk behind and around them). The females completely ignore them.
My guess is that these are two year old birds that are the equivalent of teenagers. All full of hormones and acting tough. I assume that they haven't yet taken an a** kicking from an older gobbler yet and once they do, they'll calm down a bit. I just find it odd that bigger gobblers dont even acknowledge them.
Anyone know what's happening? Does anyone see this with "their" flocks?
