If he is friendly has a "hen" he will be friendly as a Tom. My Tom, JJ, is my favorite bird. I carry him, pet him, talk to him. He is harmless to anyone and everything, except the roosters and they just fight because they are all stupid. BUT it is harmless. The only thing with a TOM remember it is a male and can get aggressive towards people especially kids, Do not get rid of him just watch him, my grandkids love JJ, BUT I make sure I am there (between them to assure they are safe). Grady???? Trace?? Whatever you want..
