add a couple of tablespoons of pumpkin, that should get things moving again

What she said

Also what exactly are you feeding and how much bone meal are you giving?

Are you giving them turkey thighs with the bone still in as well as the bone meal? They might be getting too much bone in their diet and might need some extra meat. The pumpkin will definitely help

Have you started giving them organ meat yet?
