    Hi there! I've noticed some strange behaviour in my turkey though am not all. Conversant with turkey. It squat and keep silent for some time then it goes its normal business. I keep on caressing it but it did not run away. Is it a sickness?

    I don't know turkeys but that behavior seems to mimic what a chicken hen does when she is ready to be mated. You could also post your question at "Turkey thread." Just put that in the search box above and it will come up for you. [​IMG]

    G’Day from down under FARKESU [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I know nothing about turkeys but you have been given some good advice.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Am grateful for your contributions on my post. I really appreciate your familiarization. However, before I read your suggestions I took my turkey to vet doctor who told me not to worry. It is a hen in need of mating. Waaw! I dont know being new to turkeys. Now I have to look for a tom!

    Good day all chickens here. The weather here is cool and a little windy. I think is nice for my flocks. Hurray!
