We started with 4 Bronze Turkey Pullets, we're now down to 1. The first died, we figured it was some kind of sickness, no prob. The 2nd died and I called the feed store where we bought them, they said no problems have been reported, the 3rd died and now im just waiting on Gertrude (my wife named the last surviving one) to pass. She will eat and drink, but wont stand on her own, she was the biggest and grew faster than the other 3. We took her out to the garden yesterday to see what she would do. Just sat there. She'll change places in her cage but wont move toward food. If I put her in front of food, she'll eat, and drink while sitting. We've tried to support her, but wont or cant stand on her own. She's about 1 month old, bought live. We've raised chickens before with no problem, this may be the last turkey we do. Any advice would be great. Thanks Walt.
