Our friend ordered some turkeys (not sure what type) and he doesn't want all of them and is going to give us 5. My boyfriend's dad has had turkeys before but it was large groups (20+). My boyfriend, his mom, and sister all warned me that they were aggressive and never wanted turkeys again. His mom said she would have to swing her purse in circles just to get from the car into the house and my boyfriend said when he was younger that he would have to run from the school bus to the house and sometimes would only make it to the car and have to stay in it till someone seen him. I was wanting to know if only 5 of them would be aggressive especially if there ends up only being one male? I plan on handling them often when we get them to try to tame them but I know it didn't work for my male Chinese goose. He was tame at first but once he got old enough he switched on a dime and started attacking everyone including me. I didn't know if turkeys are as aggressive since I've seen people with them on tv having a tom in the house but assumed it was due to there only being one.
