    I got my Bourbon Red poults today...I had some slightly older chicks to put with them as I did with my Royal Palms. These little guys were pecking the chicks like crazy... grabbing tail feathers and even combs!!!!! I also saw two poults playing tug of war with a stray pine shaving.... My RP's are very laid back the BR's are acting like a bunch of little hooligans.... anyone experience this before?

    I don't know if I can really speak for all RBs but I have a female and she is fine, she is the only turkey that survived since last year but she is quite loving. I never gave her any special attention yet she lets me and my son pet her, she also lets me hold her. She has earned a name, Lady.
