    about a month ago one of my 2 to 3 month old turkeys. It was fine in the morning but that after noon when my wife went to feed them it was just laying there .when she talked to it he looked up at her started shaking and died.It had blood all in the pin that was coming from its mouth. The other turkey is still doing fine. I got 3 more baby turkeys , they are about 2 weeks old and another one done the same thing. He would not move , eat, or drink.Had blood coming from both ends.less than 8 hours it went from fine to dead no warning signs. the fisrt turkey I was feeding chickstarter . but the new ones I feed game bird starter with 30% protien. the other three turkey are still fine. Is this a common problem in turkeys? ? ?

    Sorry to hear about your turkeys. Were you feeding it medicated feed? I only feed gamebird turkey starter and I have never lost any turkeys. How are the remaining turkeys doing?
