aggressive tom

Asked February 3, 2020, 6:42 PM EST

my juvenile tom was alone until 2 juvenile hens could be found. after about a month, the tom began to become aggressive toward humans, scaring some to the point that they would not get out of car, etc. I hope it is a phase, what to do?

He is protecting his "harem", the hens. He may calm down over time. If not, you will need to pen up the tom or hens or all of them. He is just performing his natural behaviors.
