    don't know how it happened, but you treat all wounds the same: flush with warm water mixed with some peroxide or betadine solution, apply antibiotic ointment to the wound and keep it clean and dry, keep an eye out for infection. He may need to be separated from the others for a few days if turkeys peck at each other like chickens do
