    A couple days ago i noticed green poop all over my coop. I also noticed my turkey getting weaker and weaker. Today he didn't come outside for food and i looked inside and sure a nuff he was dead. I noticed some mold in the waterer which i cleaned and the chickens seem fine. i just didnt know and dont want my parents to be mad thinking that i didnt feed it or something. Please Help!!

    Green droppings are often a sign of not eating (other than eating grass clippings, etc.). How old was he, and did he have any other symptoms? Sometimes birds just die for unknown reasons.

    I would check out Blackhead. Green poop is never a good sign.
