I have a tom that has one and from what I have read I need to use a steal syringe and drain it. How the heck to I immobilize this giant bird long enough to drain a blister?

I would do it at night time....Birds seem to sort of go into a calm stupor when it's dark, and you'll need somebody to help hold him still.....Oh, good luck with that!

Just a thought, could try cutting a corner out of an old pillow case or large grain bag for the head then once you have the turkey in the pillow case / bag or close it off to keep struggling under control. Then cut open a hole where you need to work, drain and treat the blister.
