I did a ton of research before I got any animals. One thing I never read about was turkeys acting jelous.

Yesterday I did my daily momma time. I sit in the grass and hold each duck and turkey in my lap, and hand feed treats by their pool.

Yesterday the Turkeys Yumyum and Dinner started attacking everyone who was in my lap.

I would put the duck down and hold the Turkeys. After a while I would put them down, because the ducks would get jelous and want their momma time.

It turned into a vishious cycle. Any ideas?

YES I ALREADY KNOW I SPOIL THEM ALL ROTTEN

I would be making a separate pen for your turkeys. Yes they get jealous and moody, and they can and will kill other poultry, especially if they are raised with them. Turkeys are wonderful birds that shouldn't be bonded too much to other species or humans, but that's just been my experiences with them.
