Hi! As summer is here where I live my turkeys have gone into broody mode. All seemed well until hatching day came....mother and chicks seemed to be getting on swimmingly, but when i came back to check them a few hours later one chick was dead! Its body seemed compressed as if it had been squashed. I left the remaining chicks with the mother turkey yet a few days later another chick was dead, presumably from the same circumstances as the first. I wasnt sure whether this was just a freak occurence but then another turkey mother who seemed to be doing a better job than the first mother squashed her 2 week old, seemingly hardy chick today. I am distraught! Initially i thought it was the weak chicks who were being squashed but now i think the blame is on the mother turkeys. Has anyone had an experience like this? Do you have any tips you could share? Are mother turkeys always useless at being mums? Please share your thoughts i dont want to have another disaster like this again. Thanks.
