I bought 70 white turkeys, which I have had for exactly 1 week today. I initaily lost 5 due to shipping stress, which the hatchery covered. I lost 8 more due to trampling etc. 4 of them the other turkeys have picked at, Does anyone know a way to stop them from pecking at each other? there is plenty of space, and I clean the pen every other day -I have 2 waterers, and a long trough filled with meat maker food. So food or water si not an issue. Im wondering if they are just culling the weaker birds, if this is normal and if there is a way to curb this to prevent more loss. Thanks for the help.What is a "normal loss?" I was told turkeys were hard to raise because they drowned and would forget to eat and a host of other stuff. i raised 14 last year, with no trouble at all. The ones i have seem happl, and have already began to get wing feathers....eating and drinking nicely. My philosphy was keep them dry,warm and fed.
