    Hi I have 2 Toms and 1 hen bourbon red turkeys I received at young age, and they are about 8 months old now. They were very friendly and followed me around but today one of my toms attacked me! Is there any way to correct this behavior?

    All turkeys are attack turkeys. Didn't the lazer beam eyes and razor sharp beaks and claws tip you off? You should be glad they haven't pecked out your eyes and absorbed your soul!




    In seriousness, once they start attacking, there's no real way to stop it.




    Crap, I was logged in under MFB trying to fix his signature for him...
