In with our chicks and guineas (all are a month old or less), we have a couple baby turkeys. The turkeys have always seemed a little "wobbily", but get around ok. Is this normal for turkeys? They are not as sure-footed as the chickens, and especially not the guineas.

Not so sure... but my two turkeys seem pretty sure footed. What are you feeding them? I do believe that both the turkeys and guineas should be on a 28% protein turkey/game bird feed in order to properly develop their legs so they don't give out on them.

We are just feeding them starter feed like the chickens. They all eat the same thing, plus they are pecking at the grass, bugs, etc. in their run.
