Well, in short, I had to put down one of my two Broad Breasted White Hens. I was planning on breeding her this season and then retireing her in the pasture as she is WAY to big and needs a more grassed diet.. Any Hoo... I got this "BRIGHT" idea that if I let my turkey loose in the pasture, she would be able to get some much needed excersise and mabye loose a few pounds. SHe's been in the pasture last season with no problem... This is what happend to her. Something bit her on her brest, and peeled off the entire skin and feathers from both breast... She was limpping to me for help and I nearly Cried in horror... The exposed meat was larger than that of a dinner plate. The only thing I could do was end her suffering FASTER instead of an entire day of paid and aggony... What could have done it? Could it have been a Dog? Bobcat? Coyotoe? Donkey? Pony? The donkey and ponies have never shown any agression to the turkeys, ducks and geese... Then again Im not home for most of the day while Im at work... .... My poor poor girl. The last BBW Hen I have has been moved to my yard... and is no longer in the pasture.
