    I've been scrambling eggs to give to my girls to make them gain a little bit of weight and now that my sick turkey is getting better (YAY!) and I was wondering if I could give him a portion of the scrambled eggs to, to give him a little boost? If not, what is there that I can give him? I have duck eggs too.. and just about anything else I can get my hands on to put some weight on him and get him back to being healthy again.

    I've never owned a turkey but I would do it in a heartbeat.

    We feed ours hard boiled eggs all the time shell and all. Whatever extra eggs we have goes back to them. Cat food is also a good protien source, we give that to our peafowl from time to time.
