Ok so I had 6 Broad Breasted Bronze Turkeys... Now i have 5. The 6th was the weakest of the bunch and was recooperating from a recent illness (it froze overnight and she got chilled, got the squirts and was all around miserable.. she was doing much better after a few days of warmth (heatlamp) and some rest. We put them all away last night (we let them free range during the day) and she was fine, eating and drinking well.. moving around.. she was still not up to snuff like the rest but getting there. This morning we found her DEAD. Pecked to death. When we let the others out, our one big Tom started to try to ride her. (weirdest thing i've ever seen) and the other hens started pecking her and clawing at her. I have never encountered this before.. although This is only our 2nd year raising turkeys. Has anyone come across turkeys who kill thier flock members and eat them? This was just gross. Feathers EVERYWHERE. None of the other turks are sick, doing just fine. Just wondering what others thought. Is this just purely a Darwin thing? (strong getting rid of the weak) or is this actually intentional killing?
