Turkeys have a death wish until they reach two months old. Upon arrival, turkey chicks will run to the coldest corner of the brooder and attempt to freeze to death. Or, if they find the heat lamp, they will sit directly under it until they start to pant and then die of dehydration. They will eat their bedding, usually pine shavings, when there are piles of feed available. They will sit in the water dish but not drink any. They will poop on their feed and not eat. They will lie on top of each other to get warm and crush the chicks on the bottom of the pile. They will peck at each other until someone draws blood.
If your turkey makes it to eight weeks it instantly becomes invincible. It will survive 90+ degree days and mountains of snow with minimal human intervention. Some water and a wind break and they're good to go. I cannot explain this phenomenon. Because at four months they are your Thanksgiving dinner. And they won't survive processing day without a presidential pardon.
