I have 5 ducks, 2 geese, and a turkey. The ducks have been laying quite a while. One of the geese has just started laying. The turkey was born April 7th. I got him from JulieNKC. I believe it's a female. Her name is Ting. She's sort of slate blue colored, and quite big. She is super friendly, and always comes running to me, and follows me around everywhere. I recently clipped one of her wings because she leaps up and over our 6' corral fence, then does a little jig on whoever's car is handy. Anyway...the issue. Yesterday when I went down to the barn to "visit" with my little darlings, Ting would not get up. She always comes to me right away. So I went to her. She was laying down, and she did not get up. She made some strange noises unlike her normal "putt". I pulled out each of her wings, picked her up, put her back down (she continued to lay there), and checked her legs. I couldn't find anything wrong with her, but she was not reacting with any enthusiasm. Actually, she was not really reacting at all. All of my animals are used to me picking them up and checking them out, but they don't usually just lay there for it. I sat with Ting for quite a while, then we took our dogs for a walk. After the walk, I went back to sit with Ting. She was standing up, but not walking around. I put everyone in the overnight pen and went to bed. This morning, I went down to let them out into the corral, closely watching Ting jump down from her roost. She seemed to be moving fine, and came right over to me.... And then sat down, kinda fluffed her wings out, and...shimmied. A lightbulb went on over my head. Could she be "in heat"? Do you even call it that?
