I’m new to raising birds and I need some help with my young Tom. I have four 9-week old pullets, 2 pekin ducks, and an 8-week old male turkey. Everyone has gotten along thus far except my Pekins like to occasionally chase the turkey around for no apparent reason. But other than that, all has been smooth. Since I discovered I had all pullets and no rooster, I went and got a rooster today off Craigslist that someone in the city wasn’t allowed to keep. He just started crowing a few days ago according to the guy I got him from. I introduced them and immediately my 8 week old Tom kept trying to claw and peck the rooster. I kept breaking it up, but he kept going right back after him with pretty serious intent. I have them separated at the moment. I have the rooster in the coop with the ladies and the turkey is in the run underneath the coop. He’s pretty upset that he’s not up with his familiar friends right now! I’ve heard that male turkeys can be aggressive towards other birds, but I’m hoping since they’re all still pretty young I can get them to get along. I plan on letting my turkey out of the run and letting him wander around my property when he gets older, but for now I’ve been keeping him with my chickens in the coop. I think he’s grown to think it’s his flock over the last few weeks I’ve had him. Maybe it’s time to let him out now??? Right now the rooster and turkey can hear and smell each other but are on separate levels. Is this enough to introduce them overnight or should they be able to see each other too? I’m hoping to reintroduce them tomorrow and have it go more smoothly. Otherwise I won’t feel comfortable leaving them together in the run while I’m at work.
