Just this past weekend our young (5mo) Tom found his gobble. His strutting and spitting button has also turned on big time. The wierdest thing is that he has started throwing temper tantrums if he doesn't get his way. For example; it was time for him and our female to go in their cage. Normally they will follow us or we can coax them in by walking with them or behind them. The past two times he has been asked to go in his cage he's refused. We picked him up, all 35 lbs of him, and put him inside the coop and closed the door. He then got all skinny, with his head and neck stretched out as tall as he could, he pointed his wings down to the ground and stomped them down at the same time he stomped his feet. He wasn't flapping his wings, he was pounding them into the ground as he stomped one foot at a time. He doesn't make any noises, just stomps like a 2 year old child. The first time he did this we were surprised, as we'd never seen a turkey temper tantrum. The second time he tried it, it was hard not to laugh at him. Tonight when it was time for them to go to bed, he tried it again, but we told him to knock it off, so it only lasted about 10 seconds. Is our turkey wierd or is this temper tantrum behavior something that comes along with growing into his big boy Tom-self? He has also started to not like our daughter's pink bike and blue helmet, the weed wacker, the power washer, the trash can. He puffs up and chest butts them. He has been very friendly all along, but this new behavior has my husband thinking that "Big Guy" might go from family pet to the dinner table if he becomes agressive towards people. So is Big Guy just feeling his oats or what?
