Can I give this to my not so active turkey?

    All my turkeys get occassional yellow foamy poop. I've heard that it just happens occasionally like a cleaning agent. I've also heard that it is coccidiosis that birds start to get at about three weeks, and that they will get it over and over, but each bout is less serious (from a local commercial turkey grower). I don't know what's true, but I don't treat them with medicated feeds or animal drugs, and it goes away. If it persists, you might want to make more noise to get the attention of the true turkey doctors on this site.

    You can give Electrolyte & Vitamin Supplements at any age. Yellow poop can be blackhead. Check out some of the other posts on this subject. Lots of good information. I am trying cayenne pepper for my blackhead (if in fact it is blackhead?!?)

    Does it work? What all do you have to use for the Cayenne Pepper?
