    I have a baby turkey who is loosing the fur on the top of his head. it was really little at first and i thought something just bit him, but its getting bigger and you can see the veins on his head! [​IMG] could it be a disease?

    I'm clueless and this site answers just about everything!

    How old is your baby? Adult turkeys don't have much fur/feathers on their heads. Your baby may just be growing up...
