I am sure fighting this odd sinus and eye infection in a few of the turkeys
I will try to find out from where they came what the breed is with the bell bottom feathers and white earlobes,. Dying to know the breed! Very unusual nostrils also. My dynamics here are changing since we have added my FILs older Boston Terrier. Very bird aggressive lil dog. She loves our pug mix and they have had play dates for years. Suzy is at least 9 years old so she is being a real challenge to train.
With the recent additions I took in, am not offering hatching eggs or chicks period until I know that the lil roosters are all gone or clean. Its been a painful learning experience I won't do again. My 2 Hollands have me so worried and I thank you for helping them
I gave the turkeys a pseudo-bath yesterday. I didn't want to wash off the medicated dust, so I let them walk around in water up to the hock joint (help wash their nasty feet so I could better check for leg mites). The hot water seemed to really help them breathe better, and the hot compresses over their eyes really helped with her eye and their sinuses. She does open the eye now, but there's a white film over it (thinking that's the nictitating membrane, but it's opaque with grossness). We've given them another round of antibiotics, and they're all eating medicated chick starter (she especially has had some ultra-nasty poopies ).
Can you tell what kind of comb the bellbottom roosters have? The hen doesn't seem to have one--there's just a tiny pink patch above her beak, but it doesn't have any other features I can make out. They all seemed to have very small wattles as well. I haven't been able to make out any extra toes (so there goes Sultans) and they don't have any beards either. Langshans have red earlobes, big red single combs and lack those crazy nostrils. I've been trying to find chicken breeds with funky noses, but the only one anyone's mentioned was the Sultan (which these guys aren't).
