My RI Red Rooster gets aggressive sometimes (especially if he's been "busy" as my daughter, McNuggetJr, puts it) but over the past week he's been really agitated. Then on Saturday morning I heard the gobbler... I suspect it to be a wild tom. I watch the turkey from time to time and notice he would make his way slowly out of the woods into the middle of the field, closer to the chicken lot. When the turkey would gobble, the rooster would answer back with a crow. Kinda funny to watch the rooster dance and display trying to keep the turkey at a safe distance from his ladies... with a 6 ft fence between him and the turkey... ! Don't know how long this went on before the turkey gave up for the day, but then he was back Sunday morning and it started all over again.
Maybe I should sell tickets!
