Hello everyone! New to the site and I am in a bit of a panic over my hen turkey. I have one hen and 5 toms. They are 6-1/2 months old. The hen and one tome are heritage bronze and the other 4 toms are heritage bronze/spanish crosses. Recently the toms began "mounting" the hen. She laid her first egg yesterday! Today I noticed that she is sliced up pretty good on one side. I am assuming it's from the toms mounting her. At this point I am aware that they should have their nails clipped, (wish I knew that a few days ago!). Anyway, my question is how to treat her injuries? Is there a suggested topical antibiotic to use or what? I hate to see her get sick as she is my only hen and a very sweet animal. Anyone who has turkeys can tell you how they love to spend time with you, almost like puppies.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
