I would love some advice on this. We have 2 pairs of turkeys, both females are very confused and are laying and trying to nest in this Michigan winter. The Bourbon Red hen which is almost 6 months old has started getting VERY aggressive with my little silkie roo. A couple days ago I had to remove her from his comb that she was trying to rip off. He got brought into the house cleaned up and was doing good 24 hours later and went back out to the coop. Today, 2 days later, I went out to check waterers, feeders, and for eggs and the hen was in the coop eating. She has blood splattered all around her face. I ran out of the coop to find my silkie roos completly plucked of all his feathers from his head. Completly bald except a couple strands on the very top. I watched him and he is drinking and going about his business, just slower than normal. I want to know what is up with this hen all of a sudden? Is this something to excpect from a hen or is this not normal? The other Sweetgrass hen in not becoming violent at all. These are my first turkeys I am keeping for breeders. We are planning on building a hoop house very early spring because I heard that the toms will fight. The toms are not fighting they seem to know who is who's mate. This darn hen is just trying to kill her a chicken? Any advice is welcome, even if I should put her in the freezer for dinner.
