    I couldn't resist the title!

    My turkey sure seems to shiver a lot. He is in a 6' x 8' coop with 6 chickens. The coop is not insulated, but it is finished off inside and not drafty. The chickens seem to do just fine. He gets plenty of food and water. Is he really cold or is this just his was of making heat (like when we shiver). I just found it odd that he shivers so much and the chickens don't. Opinions please!

    How old is he? My MW used to shiver when he was 5 or 6 months old, but I haven't noticed it lately. He seemed more cold-sensitive than his BR friends.

    Well.....it doesn't matter so much now. In another post here I mention that he can no longer stand. He's going to freezer camp tonight.
