One of the turkey poults I got in last Friday was dead when I got home today.

I kinda had a bad feeling about it because from the start it has peeped almost constantly. It was eating and moving around with the others, but it did seem a bit more clumsy. Didn't seem to be anything wrong with it as far as looking compared to the others. I am guessing simple failure to thrive.
:f
Hope the other ones stay healthy!l

Good Luck with them I hear they can be dificult.

Thanks for all the sympathy. It's amazing how quickly these little guys can get under your skin!
The other two seem to be doing fine, as are the chicks, with the exception of a few with pasty butts. I have cleaned them off and made sure vents aren't blocked. I will be putting a bit of oil on them to help prevent sticking.
The ducks....they sent me hyper active aliens! They can see me come through the front door from where the cage is and they all start trying to get out the bars of the cage as soon as they see me. They jump up and down and when I pour water into their dishes, they jump up to catch it as it pours.I had to give them a big pan with about 2 inches of water in it because they would all try to swim in the waterer till they splashed it all out.
I can't wait till they are big enough to go outside.
