The tom is pretty over the top when he starts strutting his stuff! Their head changes color the wattle blows up like a balloon and their chest feathers look like an opera singers bosom. Their feathers are iridescent browns, reds, oranges. Very impressive what they can do to themselves in effort to prove they are the boss
