    Okay.. I think I might have some sick young turkeys. There is certainly something going on with these babes. I had them in a cage with young silkie chickens just to keep them all protected, then I discovered the male was beating up on the turkeys. I thought what was going on with their heads was due to him, but he has been out for over a week and its just not getting any better. [​IMG] Sorry its such a big pic, but I wanted to make sure the redness and some of the blue spots could be seen. Also, anyone have any idea what kind of turkeys these are?

    I can't really see anything wrong from the pics. They look pretty normal to me.

    I don't see anything wrong, the only "funny" part about their heads I can see in the pics is their caruncles starting to show under their baby fuzz. When older, the boys can turn their carunicles from white, to red, to blue darn near command. Poor things really do turn white as a ghost if they get scared!
