    Hello,
    I was wondering, since turkeys have so much more bare skin surface for mosquitoes to feed on, can they contract West Nile Virus and die from it? Is there some kind of repellant that can be used or should I plan an sewing some snoods [​IMG] for my future turkeys to protect their necks?
