    I noticed a couple of days ago it was hanging out by itself. He gets up and walks and I think it's eating. But it I notice that is looks like he loosing some of his feathers, like some bare spots. I also notice little red dots underneath the wings.I have one other baby turkey in with him and he has the same thing, but he doesn't lay around alot. I might be over protected by just curious. I think they are around 2-3weeks
