    I have a 3to5 month old bronze breasted turkey hen(the only turkey we have) and when I tried to put her in the coop and feed her and the rest of my chickens she just stood there like a statue with the tip of her wings touching the ground.I push on her side but it was like trying to move a boulder .Then she lied on the ground with her wings spread out so the only thing I could think of was to pick her up and she is NOT a lite turkey it was like lifting a 50 pound weight of the ground. She was detirmined to stay in that very same spot but I have no idea why and it's confusing me why she would do that because she hasn't ever done anything like that before and she is a very loving turkey.PLEASE HELP!?!?!?
