We brought 12 turkey poults home that didn't seem like they were going to make it the first night. They had blood in their poo. Got them through that and about a week later lost one and I'm not sure why. Got two more poults from a different breeder and kept them seperated for a few days. First night a huge storm came through and drenched them even though they had cover, also tore down my peacock enclosure too. Built a really nice brooder for all the poults. They had one good night in the brooder. A five foot long Cottonmouth was in the brooder when I went out yesterday morning. He'd killed five babies and eaten two before I got there. I've never had problems with snakes before with all my peeps and peafowl. I just feel doomed at this point to have turkeys. I knew they were hard to raise, but it just seems like one thing after another. Needless to say, we've revamped the brooder and have snake repellant down. Hoping this poult experience gets better. I've always had much better luck with peeps. Thanks for letting me vent.
