    Hi I was wondering what is wrong with my baby turkeys does anyone have any ideas?? I hatched 7 out and it's been 6 days all were looking good and today 3 died. Don't know what happened to them I have baby chicks also and they are doing fine, do turkeys require different care then baby chickens? I had this same problem last year and all died but 1. I have bedding water feed sand grit they just start laying down, slowly died. I am open for suggestions.

  2. what temp do you have them at?
