My standard bronze turkey hen came out of her house today with bloody sides. Both areas of her body, under the wing on each side, are bleeding and missing the skin. I noticed Tom trying to breed her last week. He is huge and she was making a noise that sounded like he was hurting her due to his weight. I shooed him off of her (sorry for those of you who think I should have let nature take it's course). I did not notice any injuries to her yesterday afternoon when I was feeding them nor last night when I locked up their house (although it was getting dark and she was already roosting inside). When she came out of the house today, she walked straight down to a grassy area and laid down. At first I thought she was trying to get away because she was hurt (she is always very friendly and social). I took some food down to her and noticed she was laying on two of her eggs (her first-she is about 9 months old). At first I thought she may have been attached by an animal that caused her injury because we lost one of our chickens (hen) last week when something attacked it and just ate the head and neck. Also, a rooster was dripping blood from his neck two days ago and another today had a bloody combs that was dripping on his neck feathers. The chickens free range all day (we live on 12 acres in the county) and we pen them in at night with chicken wire that is buried 18 inches below the ground and electric fencing to boot all around the perameter of their house and run. I set a live trap every night since the hen was killed last week and finally caught a skunk last night. I cannot tell if maybe the skunk did this or if the turkey's injuries are related to Tom trying to mate her and tearing her skin. The turkeys and chickens stay in the same run/house that is enclosed inside a lean-to area outside. Any ideas if the Tom turkey could have done this while mating or does this look like an animal attack? Of course, I am going to continue to set the live traps nightly. We have caught a possum out here before but it was months ago. Also, should I just put neosporin on her wounds? It doesn't look like there was too much muscle damage, she is walking around with her right wing hanging lower than usual and she did eat some today. I will try to get some pictures when my husband gets home and can help me hold her wing up a little.
