    Sneezing Silkie

    I have a 2 year old Silkie hen that has been sneezing for about 2 weeks now. I saw her with a little bit of bubbles in the corner of her eye maybe 3 times and it was usually after she sneezed. I’ve been doing vet rx, but she’s still sneezing. She’s completely normal other than sneezing, she...

    Hey guys! Complex question here..........We ordered 4 meat turkeys which we hope to raise, show in 4-H, and hopefully sell at the junior market sale or eat for ourselves. Anyways, our chicken flock was recently diagnosed with Marek's. And, if you have Marek's, no showing for you! I know turkeys...

    Reducing protein and limiting rations to slow growth rates?

    So I have eight turkey poults. They are pets. They are broad breasted bronze. I know they aren’t intended for pets -and are meat birds; and keeping one (or 8) as a pet is setting yourself up for an early loss to heart attack or legs/ knees giving out because of the rapid and dramatic growth...

    How old to vaccinate a turkey poult for fowl pox?

    Today I went to the feed store to buy fowl pox vaccine for our turkey poults. The label says it is for Pigeon Pox. Is that the same as fowl pox? Also, the directions say it can be given to chickens between 4 and 16 weeks of age. Does that also apply to turkeys? And how long do they need...

    I got two turkey poults 6 weeks ago (when they were two weeks old) and the lady was almost positive they were a male (the darker one) and a female (the lighter one). However I’m just not sure and obviously it’s extremely difficult to sex young turkeys. I was told they were a mix of Bourbon Red...

    I just picked up 4 Royal Palm turkey poults today - I'm not sure of age...young because they still have their egg teeth, but some have larger wing feathers. One of the poults is wet on the underside. Eating and drinking fine. Acting like all the others. Upon inspection, it looks like it's vent...

    Mixing Chicks and Poults

    So, I've done the drill with chicks; I've raised quite a few batches quite successfully while owning chickens for eight years. I know that all chickens/chicks are carnivores and can be cannibals if they see blood or a weak chick (hence the reason for red light bulbs). I have two chicken...

    Thoughts on how we clipped wings...are we going too far

    I am confident I am not hurting the birds, but I am wondering if we are cutting more feathers than necessary. I ask because I have 1 year old birds that still havent grow back their wing feathers. Thanks for the help

    Ducklings & Poults?

    A friend of mine has 4 ducklings and 1 poult (the only ones that hatched) in a brooder together as the turkey panics when taken away from the ducklings. Are there any health concerns my friend should be aware of?
