Help!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all. Yesterday I brought home a 2 month old turkey. She had 9 siblings and came to us looking a bit roughed up.
She has strong legs but doesn't stand up or walk around. She just lays down and she does sleep quite a bit. I have have not see. Her eat and she has drank very little. We bought nurtadrench for her today hoping that will help give her some extra electrolytes and vitamins she needs.

Is this a serious illness or do we think she might be depressed being away from other turkeys? (She will be in with our other turkey once she gets her strength back)

Any advice is greatly appreciated!!!

Welcome to BYC!

Would be best to keep her in a warm room until you can get her back on track.... 80-85 degrees is ideal. Can you post a picture of her poop?

That means your poult is probably quite sick. Can you take it to a vet? If not, what medications do you have?

We contacted a vet but it's very expensive. We have been using a dropper to give her water with the nutraquench and electrolytes. We have also been giving her egg whites for protein

Also it's not green every time. It's mixed with white and brown too.

Today she climbed out of her box which is huge for her because she barely moves. Maybe the nutraquench is working?
