    I just adopted a baby turkey yesterday and I don't know a thing about them.

    Apparently someone ordered six of them and the other five picked on this guy until it was quiet raw on the right side. The guy who ordered them was just going to throw it out of his truck on the way home, but some friends of ours convinced him to give it to them. They in turn called me, What do I need to know? I have baby chicks already I have it seperated from them, I am sure they would pick at it also....

    Here are a few pictures
