    I have a white turkey with what looks like air bubbles under her wing. Does anyone know what this is and how to make it better?

    Sounds like dry pox. Except that's not where the bumps ought to be.

    my 23 day old chicks have the same thing, and they'va had ot for a while. it doesn't seem to hurt them but i've asked about it and was told that it was air inside the crop (the crop can extend all the way around the neck)

    i was told to massage the crop and see if i can get them to burp the air out. hopefully someone can answer your question a bit better because i have the same problem.
