Injured turkey doing ok.

The dog attack victim from yesterday is still alive and is eating and drinking... all good signs so far. It is limping on one leg but is bearing some weight on it. I have stretched out it's wings and it doesn't seem to mind that either. I think it is mostly bruised and has lost a lot of feathers. It is depressed but as I said it is eating and drinking. I will leave him by himself for a few more days to recover more before putting it back with the remaining 12 turkeys.

The other turkeys I have put into the cattle panel poultry tractor for now. They are unhappy about not being able to free range but since they are flying in with the dogs they will have to stay in there until I come up with something better.
