Okay, you hear that turkeys, especially young ones, are dumb. Are they dumb enough to not recognize food as food? Seriously. We started with two bourbon red chicks, then combined with another bourbon red (same source for all) and a slate. They did really well up to the last ten days, then seemed thin (they don't live at my house--well, they didn't--they do now, in my living room while we try to get them to recover. All two left.)....and this morning, one died. By the time I got over there to pick them up, another had died and the last two, one bourbon, one slate, are horrendously thin, literally skin and bones. When I saw them last (about 3 or 4 days ago) they were in fairly good shape, just thin-ish, maybe 3-4 lbs each. Current weight is more like 2 lbs. If they're lucky. Agewise, they're fully feathered, but not adult. More teenagers. BUT...poop is pretty normal in consistency, no diarrhea at all, although there is some bright yellow bile-appearing liquid in there. Skin fold check in several areas over the body say dehydration is an issue; their crops palpated empty or darn close to completely empty. So. From an outside temperature of 90+ F (it's been as high as 106 for the last week), they came into my house (quarantine from the chickens) and are at 75-77 degrees with a light at one end of the x-pen they're in. They have both, with some convincing, eaten mealworms and game bird chow, and drank repeatedly but not like they were terribly thirsty (or hungry)...they mostly seem tired (no surprise there). Over the last six hours, they have eaten, drunk, pooped, and rested, with an apparent increase in willingness to eat and drink. They insist on walking through the rather large water bowl, but I can live with lots of water changes. Anyone have any ideas for me to try? I plan to worm them tomorrow, if they are still alive. A light dose, see what we get, if some worms, then I'll hit them again. I offered: Large mealworms. Small mealworms. (The bourbon was familiar with them, the slate not so much, but it's now going after smaller ones with apparent vigor.) A mix of various grains (it's an enhanced scratch including corn, peas, wheat, etc.) that seems to interest them. Water. Lots and lots of clean water--but they drank better after it was cloudy--maybe trouble seeing the water level when it's clean? Canned dog food dollops...they had no interest in that at all, although my chickens go nuts for it. Any suggestions more than welcome--thanks!
