    my 6 month old bronze turkey has lately been very lazy.
    every time i look out side (which is alot since i free range) shes resting.
    i hope that shes okay.. is this normal behavor should i be concerned.

    walk up to her, put youre ear to her face and listen for a raspy breathing. if she is raspy or congested give her 1cc tylan for every 10lb weight twice a day for a week. she will feel much better after a day or so. Turkeys normally do not just sleep, they are not lazy
