Well, I am new to this site and am pretty desperate to know what is going on. My wife and I run an animal sanctuary and we have chickens, ducks geese and turkeys all in the same area. But our chickens are dying. My wife caught a male turkey raping a chicken a few weeks ago so we moved all suspect male turkeys into another field. So today we found another chicken dead. Does anyone know if the drakes or ganders can cause this? The ganders seem idle enough and keep to themselves. The drakes have plenty of females.Has anyone come across this problem?
