My son got 6 turkey peeps 2 weeks ago for his 4-H project. We have lost 2, and this a.m. 3 of the remaining toms had the smallest of the 4 on the ground - stepping on him, pecking him, etc.,. I got him out of the brooder into a separate/safe area. I was able to use a syringe to get some water into him this a.m. and he is up on his feet and breathing much better. However, this afternoon, I have not been able to get him to eat and I have not been able to get him to open his beak for water. Any suggestions?!?!?
