Domestic Turkey

Asked June 18, 2018, 2:33 PM EDT

I am looking for information on domestic turkey behavior. Specifically an older male turkey taking a younger turkey "under his wing". This older male turkey is taking to the young turkey like he is the mother. Any information on this subject would be greatly appreciated.

How many turkeys do you have? In how much space? Turkeys are very social birds and tend to stay in groups. Do you know if the poult is a male or female?
