    Help! We have three poults (baby turkeys) that we picked up from co-op April 9th. They are the size of a 1-2 week old chick. Our chicks which we got at the same time are double that size. I have heard someone say that their 3 week old was a size of a bantam chicken. Any input anyone, what can we do - or are turkeys just really slow growers? They only have wing feathers, and still have fuzz every where else. We added marbles to their feed and water this morning hoping they'd eat/drink more. Any insight? THanks bunches!!
