Why are my turkeys dying??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I bought 15 double breasted Bronze hatchlings almost 11 weeks ago. One died within a couple days. Since then I lost one about every two weeks. Tomorrow morning I will be down to 10 turkeys. Once my birds are feathered they become free range and locked in at night against predators. The turkeys love it outside with my chickens but they do have access to the chicken feed as well as their own game bird feed. Most of them go to their own feeder but occasionally I see one or two at the chicken feeder. They seem to be thriving and growing well until one starts acting depressed and not as active and dies 2-3 days later. I have seen soft brown poo around but I don't know if its chicken or turkey and what should I know concerning poo?

Could be cocci, not positive though.
