Help! My two male turkeys have been just super aggressive but they have been raised together since hatched, there are no females, and they are only about 2 months old. How can I remedy this?

Do you mean that they are being aggressive toward each other? If that is the case, it is a normal part of the pecking order getting settled. When two equal birds are fighting over their place in the pecking order, it can take lots of fighting to get it settled. The more that you interfere with their squabbles, the longer it is going to take for them to get it settled.

If you are planning to keep these toms long term, it would be best to replace one of them with some hen turkeys. If you are just raising them for food all the problems will disappear once they are processed.
