    well i got 2 hens and a male but i had an origonal hen. she attacks the male every time he gobbles, so it may just be something like it will happen it just depends what way.

    You have introduced a new turkey into their home. They have to get their new pecking order settled. Once the pecking order is settled, things should calm down.
