I have two young turkeys with yellow/bloody poop. The adults are fine its just the younger ones. I think in the last two years I've lost like 15 to this disease. Last year I bought a group of babies and raised them until they were like 4 months old. One day they got droopy with yellow poop the next they were dead. This year my adult sweetgrass hatched 10 and 8 died and two are left. I've tried sulmet when they got sick and it never worked so I locked these last two up with copper sulfate in their water for 5 days and I let them out today but one just pooped blood and the other still seems droopy. It's never adults or babies just the juvenile ones. If I can't figure it out after this I think I'm giving up on turkeys! I feel bad I can't do anything. why aren't the adults affected just the young ones? is there anything I can do?
