Three tom turkeys vie for the attention of one hen. If puffed out feathers, red wattles, fanned tails and lowered wings don’t win her over, a repertoire of nonvocal “hums” and “chump” sounds are used to woo her. Toms breed with multiple mates, so whether or not one, two, or all three toms are rejected by this hen, they will all move on to try to impress another female.
