Hello All, my husband got our first Tom at 1 day old. He was the only one, and getting spoiled rotten for quite a long time. He never showed any aggression until we started to let him free range in the front yard. I haven't dealt much with him as my husband took care of "Jack" for the most part. Now that Jack is fully grown (he's a pretty big boy!), he started going after my husband a little bit here and there. It looks to me like a dominance thing....he fluffs himself up all proud, struts around and then sorta "bumps" and jumps at my husband a little bit and he has gotten 2 BITES in recently (broke the skin on his hand). He does let my husband pet him and move him around but he just seems unpredictable to be honest. I myself am afraid of him, so when I had to take care of him for a week while my husband was gone, I equipped myself with a broom before entering his pen to give him food and water. I have no doubt that he would have "jumped" me in some way. So now for the question....we would like to let all our Turkeys free range (we now have a total of 7 Turkeys, including another Tom who is MUCH friendlier than Jack!) but I'm worried that: #1: Jack will attack the other Tom (they are currently in pens next to each other and at first tried to jump each other through the fence). Will they eventually get along and be able to figure out who is more dominant without seriously injuring each other? #2: Will our Jack continue to try to bite and "jump" and is there anything we can do about it? I, personally, would just go out with a broom one day and put him in his place LOL don't misunderstand me...I don't mean "beating the Turkey" but I do mean I will fight back if he gets frisky again! I'm not going to stand there and take being bossed around while he rules the yard. Since it looks like a dominance thing to me (he's not straightforward with any aggression, he sorta sneaks up, strutting his stuff and then being testy), I figured he might just need to learn that it's not a good idea to be mean to the people that feed him or else, Thanksgiving will come early this year, <chuckle> (my husband would NOT consider having him for dinner or getting rid of him). Any suggestions or past experiences would be greatly appreciated!
