Woman Cracks Herself up Realizing She Can Totally Speak ‘Turkey'

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to talk to animals? We'd have so many questions! Like, do you really like living outside? Well one woman recently discovered that she had the rare gift of gab when out visiting a flock of turkeys. And people are cracking up about her unique language abilities.

Leslie Tucker was at the farm when she attempted to communicate with the birds.

At first it wasn't exactly a success. She had to make sure that the turkeys don't secretly understand English — which they don't! — as the video shows.

"If I say noise — hello! — they don't repeat," she said in the clip. "What's going on? Hey!" she said to the group of birds.

And she wasn't lying. The turkeys didn't respond to her at all. But then she tried a different tactic. She made a gobble-like noise — which totally worked.

She tried it several other times around the farm, and each and every time the turkeys followed suit.

"I am their new leader," she joked.

She really was! Those turkeys were following her every gobble. The comments section definitely took note of Tucker's way with the turkeys and couldn't stop cracking up. "The way I would never leave. The dopamine of it all," joked one person. "I know a Pokémon trainer when I see one," someone else teased. "You’re speaking their language!" a third commenter cheered.

While another commenter admitted that they too were a turkey whisperer. "When I drive by turkeys I gobble at them cus they always gobble back. It's too funny," they wrote.

All About Turkey Sounds

Contrary to what you might think, turkeys actually make a few different sounds. That distinctive gobble that we all know and love is actually done by male turkeys and is sort of like the equivalent of a rooster's crow. Gobbles are a loud, throaty, shrill, jumble of sounds that can last a mere second. But it is so distinct that most people can identify a turkey call from far away.

Male turkeys tend to gobble from treetop roosts, where the sound may carry better. Males will gobble to get the attention of females or to respond to other males in the group. Males might even gobble to to lead a group of others in call.

While the gobble is the most well-known, turkeys make other noises like cackling, whistling, and a distinctive chump and hum sound that males will make while strutting around.

So we guess that Tucker has a lot of work to do if she's ever going to be fluent in all-things turkey.
