A friend just brought me a 3 month old turkey who looked to be small and malnourished. She started eating the first day here and then all of a sudden quit. What can I do to get her eating and drinking again? She allows me to pet her and she’s walking around the area I put her in, so no problem there. Just seems to not be eating or drinking well. She is the first turkey I’ve had and I want to help her thrive. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!!

Try force feeding her, I had to do that with some of my chicks. Also, what feeds are you giving her?
I bought a high protein mix for turkeys. I’m learning with her. I’ve had many chickens, but just starting with turkeys. She was malnourished when I got her and I’m scared of what damage was done before I got her.

Ok. That feed sounds good.
