Two can solve the mystery? Please help!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
We have some young broad breasted bronze turkeys, and I noticed that one has an odd, thin skinned pocket under it's wing. It doesn't seem to be infected, and it appears to be filled with air, though I might be wrong. The turkey, named Tomato, seems to be pretty healthy and normal other than this. I haven't noticed this before on any other turkeys that we've had. Does anyone know what this is? If so, what should I do with it? Thank you.

Here are some pictures

I also had this on my broad breasted whites! I looked all over the internet to try and find out what caused them, apparently injury/bruising does it... but under the wing? I left it alone and it slowly went away on a few of the turkeys but one still had a large bubble. It didn't seem to bother them and I read it could be popped but when i popped it, the next day it came back!:idunnoI left it alone and the turkeys grew up fine. I would not worry about it because it doesn't seem serious and it never affected my four babies other than look awful! Hopefully someone with some real knowledge about this will shed some light on the issue, but for now don't worry about it and they will be fine.
