Help please, my turkey can't walk

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I came out this morning and my 4 month old turkey can't walk. He will eat and drink when these items are put in front of him, but he literally will not get up. His legs look OK but I noticed when I examined him that most of his chest feathers are missing. This is all new. Any suggestions? I would guess him t be about 15 pounds.  Thanks, Julie

Strange, so sorry! sad

Could be many issues.  Is he with other birds?  Do you see mites?  Any other symptoms?  May help to post photos for the more knowledgeable folks to examine.  Wish I could be of more help.
