I read that turkeys need more protein than chickens and some "old timers" would feed them a butchered hog -- for large flocks of course. They suggested giving turkeys raw hamburger from time to time; what say you? Lately Tommy's poos have looked like that but Trudy's poos are solid, they eat the same thing. . she perches up with the hens at night and he stays down below, always has . . 4 months old. Could he be nervous/sad they don't perch together???

Sounds like he's sick... Could be coccidiosis or blackhead.

I agree with casportpony. My first thought was blackhead. There are several wormers that are recommended for that. Last spring, my turkeys were having the same color (mustard color frothy) poops. I treated them using "durvet DuraFend Type C Medicated Feed" for 6 days. Poops were normal after that. The ingredient you are looking for is fenbenoazole in whatever brand you get. The brand I used lists no residual for turkeys and therefore no waiting period before slaughter.
