Turkey poult has reddish poo :(

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have a 2 day old Spanish turkey who is super cute (eyeliner!!!) but I saw her poo reddish (like in between red and brown) is that a normal color? She's staying with 5 2 week chicks, her sibling and 3 ducklings. They are different ages but the same size at the moment. Mixed poultry feed (has a mix of many fowl on the picture of the bag)

She got into a meal worm snack for the older babies, would that do it?

Is it blood, will she live?

I can go get a new light and just put her with her brother tomorrow.

If you have another turkey poult keep it with that. Ducklings make a wet brooder which can be deadly to poults and chicks. The first poops are often a reddish brown, I would go by behavior unless you see actual blood. Is your feed a starter which is formulated for growing birds. I have raised poults on chick starter, but game bird starter is best for the first month.
