Almost every year, the first thing that happens when I put my semi-hibernating three toed turtles outdoors in the pen is they start a round of fights until the "alpha" male is determined and things settle down. It may be best to separate your males for a while, or else watch them closely, as one year my dominant male broke the jaw on one of my other males. He did this in just 15 minutes, too, as I usually keep the other turtle indoors in a terrarium. Box turtles are capable of doing serious injury to each other.
