    i have 3 Narragansett turkeys 1 tom and 2 hens and they were peaceful for like 5 months then all of a sudden they gang up on them and i thought it would stop but its kinda funny but not for one week they will beat up on the roosters and bloody them all up! but then the other week its the roosters that bloody the turkeys up! is this normal?? there are MANY places the roosters can go to get away from them in not worried really that they will kill them but its just the roosters pride gets in the way and they don't ever back down my easter egger rooster does back down he never fights just runs and hides with the hens!! but my mixed and jersey giant and rhode island red even the silkie roosters do NOT back down lol and this tom is very BIG! lol and im only wondering if eny one else has this issue? the tom is very sweet to people and the hens but when it comes to the roosters FORGET ABOUT IT!

    That's not even remotely funny. To allow them to go on attacking each other for weeks like that makes me sick. You shouldn't have birds if you're not going to take care of them! [​IMG]

    Separate the aggressive roos from the rest of the flock.
