    I have a couple 2 day old turkeys. They don't seem to be cheeping. It looks they are trying make noise, but nothing comes out. anyone know if this is common and why?

    My turkeys have been really quiet too. I wouldn't worry to much as long as all the other body functions are working.

    they are quieter than chicks. I am new, but I have some 4 day olds in a brooder right by a brooder of chicks and they are so quiet compaired! Like they are just listening...

    One of mine is a talker, the rest are much quieter. They do seem to talk the most when they eat.
