I am somewhat new to poultry only having had a few chickens many years ago. We moved to a big property and bought a small flock of laying hens and a pair of turkeys about a year ago. My male turkey (and the rest of the flock) would be about a year and a half old and was in seemingly good health with no problems. I checked on them at about midnight and all was well but I woke up to a dead tom this morning. Watched the playback of the roosting area on our security cameras and he got off the perch at about 3am, alternated between laying and stumbling around for about 30 minutes then convulsed a few minutes, flipped on his back and died He seemed perfectly normal yesterday! I'd this something that could be contagious?
