Ok so about 6 months ago we got a turkey. He was super overweight took two people to lift the kennel he was in. So we put him on a turkey diet, lol. He's now down to 82 pounds & can walk, & his feet aren't swollen anymore. He is approximately 4 to 5 years old, his beard is almost 6 inches long! For the last 3 days i've noticed a few things. 1. He's panting more than our dogs do! (He has a mister, fan, water, & shade.) 2. He's stopped free ranging for food during the day. He just sits in his coop waiting to be fed or somewhere in the yard. When fed he will walk back to his coop to eat. 3. He doesn't try to keep the chickens out of his bed anymore, or his food. 4. He's just not as active. 5. Ok just went out this morning to collect eggs, & now he's sitting in the sun again. AND he only ate half his food last night! His feathers have finally all grown back. He looks very healthy now too. Is it just old age? He still gobbles on command, and enjoys being loved on & hugged. I'm wondering if it's just old age? His appetite is still in full force, & he still acts the same except for the above things. He does still get out & walk around, but will stop a every few feet & lay down. The other day I found him laying in the sun & panting so hard I could hear him about 5 feet away. This is not normal for us since we are in Phoenix, still in the high 90's, & in the desert? HELP?
