    What a beautiful flock! Do tom turkeys fight at all? Do you keep them all together with no hens or with hens? Love the frizzles. :)

      The toms fight on and off all year round, nothing too serious except in the early spring. I do have turkey hens too, currently 10 adult hens, 3 toms, and 6 poults. Thank you.
