Green Poo in baby turkey

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Ok, I've moved my little turkeys into the brooder but one of them has green poo today (it's day 2 in brooder)...I noticed that there also seems to be some dried poo on rear end.  I used a Q-tip to wet it and get it all off....and lots more poop came out as I did this.  It was white and yellow....now it's returned to the brooder and pooping green...should I be worried? This is my first hatch.

You should be very worried, that's Coccienda and you need to start a round of Corrid treatment immediately. You can buy Corrid or there's also an off brand slightly cheaper type both avalible at TSC.

Thank you...so it's contagious?

Your welcome. It is contagious, but I wouldn't attempt quarantine among just a few littles because they probly have all been affected. I'm sure there are quite a few threads made to discuss this issue, and if u use the site Search feature you can find Way more info than I can give you. Best of luck with your littles!

Ok, I have the corid...how much do I give them?  It only gives me directions for cows??

Right it is a cattle med. U should give 'treatment doses' and I'm pretty sure it's one teaspoon per gal of water but research it, it's a very common issue. I've only had it twice but on both occasions that stuff makes the difference in life and death.
