This morning my Husband and I picked up about 30 quail and two hens(my first turkeys) this morning from a fellow that was moving and needed his birds gone in a hurry. None of the pens had food or water and I am not sure how long they had been without, but they were definitely hungry and thirsty birds. The only bird that would not eat was a blue slate hen. Unfortunately she died in my arms this evening. I am really heartbroken even though I didn't even get a chance to get to know her. I am questioning my decision to take her in, could have the stress from the move to my home this morning killed her? Was the lack of water and food combined with the stress of the move more than she could handle? Does this just happen with turkeys sometimes? She looked kind of rough, her tail feathers were really ratty. I try to make sure that any animal that I bring to my home experiences a significant improvement from their prior living situation. The last thing I want is for the change to kill them.
