My Turkey's intestines prolapsed!!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Why did this happen? She weighed approx. 50 lbs, her intestines were lying in the run almost 3-4 feet of them. It was heartbreaking that she had to be put down. The chickens were pecking at them, too. I'm worried it may have been an infection or something and I don't want the chickens to be affected. Has anyone seen this before?

Welcome to BYC! So sorry for your loss. You might want to necropsy her and see if you can see anything obvious.
