    Keep them together or separate?

    I would definitely leave them together. I've never heard many people have problems with hens attacking other hens poults anyways. I've heard many many stories of hens raising poults together though. Unless you've seen strange aggressive behaviour with Jenny (which it doesn't sound like).. I...

    Is this a female Turkey? - NEW PICS & NEW TURKEYS!

    I read this post a while ago! Interesting to see it back at the top! I agree about it likely being a hen. Even though it's snood, dewlap and caruncles are similar to the younger tom... she's 6 months old (or more now actually) and should have much bigger, fuller caruncles (I have a 3 month old...

    Turkey disease help please

    I agree... fowl pox! If you read about the two (fowl pox and blackhead) and google pictures... I think you would feel very confident yourself that it is fowl pox NOT blackhead. And it looks like a pretty nasty case of the pox. Not sure how long they've had the scabs, but it appears its been a...

    watery poop

    Ok Leadwolf1... thanks for the response!! I actually went and did a search and found the "poop chart" on here which explained the watery poop! I never had my other turkeys do that, so I didn't know! Thanks

    Tylan/Antibiotic administration

    Hi Chicken pickin... thanks for the reply! Yeah, Im guessing the bread thing works... just being extra cautious to make sure it's not ineffective or something, for some reason :S haha. I'm a bit of a worryer! As far as the Tylan recommendation I got... I'm definitely guessing that the...

    watery poop

    Hi... one of my turkey jennys is having really watery poop lately too! In fact, her two siblings occassionally have gotten it but it seems to be more frequent lately and she is concerning me because she also seems to have a cough. But this isn't the normal "runs" that I'm used to from turkeys...

    Tom or hen?

    I say Tom too... not because of any one factor, but all combined. He has a long snood... in the first picture it looks like it's already draping towards one side of the beak. He also has large caruncles on his neck. Those are way too large for a hen at a couple months if you ask me and he has a...

    Tylan/Antibiotic administration

    A long time ago I had someone on here recommend Tylan 50 at 1cc per 10 lbs, twice a day for ten days. So previously, as recommended, I have squirted it down the turkey's throat. However, I have a particularly fussy jenny and I was wondering if anyone sees any reason why soaking a piece of break...

    Has any one had this happen to their Turkeys?

    Hey... nice to hear the positive feedback and responses on here and glad to hear she was doing better! I have used the Tylan many times... ever since it turned my hen around (I had already tried Terramycin/Duramycin on her and she was still not responding and started fading fast), it's sort of...

    Has any one had this happen to their Turkeys?

    oh wow... that looks bad. Is it on both sides? Can you please provide any other accompanying symptoms (if any) and describe this a little further (is it hard/soft - does she seem sensitive to touching there?) and let us know if she's eating/drinking/pooping normal? My first guess would be...

    Missing chick

    Chicks can squirrel under a hen really well and hide in her feathers well when sleeping.. but I do not think it could manage to stay in her feathers while she's up and down off the nest and walking around. I read your other post as well.. and I hope you find your chick! I can only offer similar...

    My first broody clutch is hatching! Help

    I know I'm not the thread starter.. but since this was about silkies, I was wondering - can silkie chicks have treats right away? Like lettuce, mealworm pieces, etc? I just got a trio that's two days old now and I hear treats are the way to their heart... but I've only ever raised turkeys and...

    Ummm... I've always had turkeys until a couple of days ago.. so I've mainly hung out on the turkey forum. However.. I just got silkie chicks so I was browsing around.. and, although I am not in the chicken section often.. I'm pretty sure I can answer this one. Nobody (I sure hope!!!) puts a...

    Ducks under a broody hen?

    Were all the ducklings ok (other than being a little shaken, of course)?? Would love to hear an update on the eggs... hope that turns out well for her. Maybe she was already hearing the vocalizations of her eggs and knew the duck noises weren't the same? Good luck! Would love to see pictures of...

Another one of those strange things that's hard to really pinpoint, I guess! Those are really weird symptoms too. Poor guy... did...

    Do hens purr to young?

    Hi guys! Well that's good to hear, Sumi! Ever since I was young, I've been told I make a very good chicken (hen) imitation. I've been looking at videos of silkie hens so I think I'm getting down their "cluck" (which to me sounds more like "buck" haha). I guess I'll continue with both noises and...

    Do hens purr to young?

    Hello! I have raised turkeys for a while and enjoy the turkey section of BYC, but I just got my first trio of Chickens! I got just-hatched Silkies. I was wondering.... with my turkey poults I have always made a soft "purring" or "cooing" noise that the turkeys have always responded to by...
