    I just noticed that one of my 7 week old white turkeys has a grapefruit sized, fluid-filled sack on her chest. I'm fairly certain it was not there this morning and if it was, it wasn't nearly that size.

    Unfortunately, I am considered "new" so I can't post a photo. But this looks very strange and concerning.

    Thanks for any ideas!

    Yes, I believe that is what it is. Thanks Ivan3 for your help!
