We have two chicks and 4 turkey poults about a month old that are down in our shop in a 8'x8' enclosure that we built that we can disassemble and move outside when it's time...... which will probably be pretty soon by this weather lately! Anyhow, yesterday, hubby was downstairs watching them (our house is on a daylight basement, the shop is the first floor) and he yelled at me to come down quick........ I got down there and a turkey was running around frantically with the end of a feather sticking out of his mouth! I went in the pen, and grabbed him and pulled it out - it was not easy to pull out either! It was about an 8'' long feather, and he had only about 2'' sticking out of his mouth! Dumb turkey! Hubby said he watched him pick it up and swallow it - I figured maybe he was cleaning himself and accidentally swallowed it, but NO - he picked it up and swallowed it, dumb turkey! Glad someone was watching when he did it, that's for sure!
