    have a 2 yr old male royal palm turkey. Loves to roost on the roof, has been
    doing so for a longtime.
    This week he started sleeping on a dog pillow on the deck. He gets up to eat and
    drink but goes right back on the dog pillow. He is just not acting right.
    His head is not as blue as it usually is.
    The waddle on his beak is shorter than normal.
    Any ideas?
    Are they prone to disease? Do they have a shorter life span?

    Thks
