    I lost my 50 to 60 lb Turkey today due to a Heart attack! He was a standard Mammoth Bronze age 8 months. He was enjoying his day out of the pen, as the weather was nice enough to let him and the hen out. I went to put them back in their house and he was just walking around and drop to the ground. I was going to show him in the spring. I miss the heck out of him! :(

    That's what happens to the BB turkeys. They are fine and then wham! Sorry for your loss. Try to get a heritage bird this spring and you will have a friend for years to come.
