But next part of the story will make you change your mind.... Daughter found three poults just wandering about aimlessly - Mother was nearby but did not care, one poult got bounced around with a calf hoof. Of course, I was gone, and had left my phones. When I got home, she had gathered the three and put them into a tote with heating pad and towel. When I went out to the yard to see what was up, there were two yellow bodies in the cow yard and a turkey hen just acting normal (not mother like) with four babies in stages of disarray strewn about the chicken yard (adjacent to cow yard). Momma turkey just quit apparently. So far, they are in a standard tote brooder set up meant for chickens. One poult is having his legs go out in front of him...so when he kicks, he hits his beak. I think if it survives the night, I'll figure out something inside a cup.
There is at least one poult under the coop hen, but so far, she is being a mom, so I will just check back often.
Any one know of big differences between brooding poults compared to chicks? I will be checking a turkey thread...but I did get puring startena that is recommended for poults. Thanks!
