Hi turkeyguy13 again. I have a pair of white turkeys. All their feathers on the front have fallen off and some on their wings and sides. We put straw in with them but it hasnt been working. I want there feathers to come back so I can sell them. What should I do.

It could be a normal moult or they may have an infestation of mites. Have a close look and see if you can spot the tiny little red things. You can get red mite powder very easily from pet or poultry suppliers. You have to dust the birds and there sleeping quarters.Sarah L
Ok I will do that and let you know. If no mites I will keep putting plenty of straw with them. Thank you

They could otherwise be bored and be self plucking.Sarah L
