    Went to do chores this morning and found 4 of turkey poults that my hen hatched yesterday were barely alive. I had given them water first and then feed later. They had a heat lamp and looked healthy last night, so I can figure out what's wrong. They were by the water and were wet. The other one looks healthy and I put him in a pen with other chicks and he is doing fine.[​IMG]

    What is the temp in there? Have you dipped there beaks in the water and actually seen them eat and drink?

    Don't know the exact temp, but they weren't trying to get away from it or crowding under it. I dipped their beaks in the water and actually seen them eat and drink. Also I put them under the heat lamp and the two black ones and came to the black ones up and walking. The yellow ones were dead, just wondering what happened.
