Can a calf die from eating wild turkey droppings? A friend said he had 3 calves die and had an autopsy done on one and was told it was poisoning from turkey droppings. Have you heard of this? I have a sick 4 month old heifer that I found today and she was unable to get up. She was downhill against a tree. Finally got her turned, and she was unable to walk. She bawls and sounds like a bull. She has lots of gas and her rectum comes out a little when she bawls. She finally walked a little after a couple of hours, but she is still really weak. She is totally not normal acting. A friend said she has the same symptoms that his calves had before they died. I cannot find any information concerning this online. Any suggestions? Thanks!!
