I have endured fights before, but today was a 5 hour endurance battle for the Turkeys and me. I have two standard Bronze. They are about 8 mo. old. My hen is already laying eggs. ( Her redeeming quality after today). Today started with the normal trilling and cooing, then neck wrapping like Giraffes. This soon escalated to the chest bumping/ slashing, wing bashing, throat and snood pulling, drag you all over the yard and into plants and fence posts...run your face through the hardware cloth, pin your face in the ground, knock down the lady with the food bucket, run over some chickens who were having a dust bath,....stop....pant...bleed....stare at each other...then start all over again. I separated them several times, they just continued to do it through the fences, even after dark! Now I'm worried that I will have to send the Tom to freezer camp. I love him dearly, and neither have shown aggression towards us. These guys fall asleep in our laps and it will just kill me to have to do one of them in. I wanted to keep them as a pair in the hopes of poults in the spring. However, I think this is beyond a lovers quarrel. Is anyone out there experiencing the same sort of aggression? Is it because I only have two?Should I have more than one hen? Will this pass? Please, any idea's on what I should do would be appreciated. I'm a noob to raising Turkeys, and never thought I would love them as much as I do, but now I'm not so sure what I signed up for.
