I have a mixed flock of chickens, ducks and 2 female Sebastopol geese. All was peaceful until this spring I brought home a couple of Royal Palm Turkey poults. I have never had turkeys. The chickens and the ducks pretty quickly put the turkeys in their place once they were allowed to mingle. During the day all are allowed to free range and are locked up at night because of foxes and coyotes. The turkeys ( one is a Tom and the other I am not sure of the sex) are now about 10 weeks old and are beginning to chase my sweet goose sisters when they lay eyes on them. I keep hoping the geese would put them in their place before they get bigger, but I don’t think that is going to happen. I have tried running the turkeys off with a broom. My next thing I am going to try is water in a squirt bottle. Is this just going to get worse and should I consider getting rid of the turkeys?
