    I have a 4 week old turkey who spins in circles when it gets excited. Also chirps much louder then the others who are the same age. It's growing the same as the others and appears to be healthy. Any input would be helpful thanks.

    Could be something neurological wrong with it, or it could just be quirky like turkeys are. Is it very friendly, could just be excited when it sees you. I wouldn't worry if it's eating drinking and growing.
