Hello, I have a year old broad breasted white turkey. We had recently let our turkeys out of the pen to free range. A few weeks ago my brother was pressure washing our back porch steps with bleach when our broad breasted white turkey came up and drank the bleach water from the steps, I'm not sure how many times. My brother kept shooing her away. I had raised her from a poult and got her used to humans.

A week ago she started having yellow spots on her head and now they are all over her head. One of her eyes is completely shut and the other is just a slit. There is yellow drainage around both of her eyes. Before this we treated her for what I believe is Infectious Synovitis with Tetroxy and she got better. Unfortunately, our other turkeys got it as well but we treated them all at the same time. Two of our turkeys have it again and I just started giving them the Tetroxy again. They are back in the pen again now.

Are the yellow spots and swollen eyes because of her drinking the bleach water or from the infectious sinusitis? Do you know what the yellow spots, yellow drainage, and swollen eyes are from if it's not either of these?

Thank you for your help.

Someone on the other thread I posted about the same thing mentioned fowl pox. I think she has fowl pox because 2 roosters that came into the turkey pen in the afternoon have a few yellow and black spots on their combs and near and under their ear holes.
