Advice needed on misbehaving male turkey pullet!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Advice needed. . I have turkey pullet
showing aggressive behavior toward my silkie. I found my 6 week old turkey pullet pinning my 8 week old silkie down to the ground by the neck. Even after picking the turkey up, he (?) refused to let go. Is this something common when raising chickens and turkeys together?

For me it was...I had a pair of midget whites that Inraised from babies...about 3-4 months of age they started REALLY beating up my chickens...I sold them immediately! My girls came first...can you make a separate pen for the turkeys?
