I was watching a nice tom with 4 hens. The way the hens were acting I figured it was getting close to one of them being mated. Sure enough it happened right in front of me about 20 yards away. The most interesting part for me was the color of the head. This tom was beat red while strutting. But as he climbed on for and adventure, his color changed to blue right before my eyes. His snood was also about 3-4" long before mounting and within seconds was about and inch long and sticking straight up. When he finished his business and got off the joy ride his head turned beat read and the snood went back to 3-4" and hanging over his beak almost as fast as I am typing this. Learned something new today and wanted to share. Anyone else want to share things they have seen in the wild the educated them.
