So I just noticed a “sore” above my turkeys eye. There turkey doesn’t seem to be in pain and act completely normal. There’s no blood, puss or anything. It’s just a bump and it seems to have a tiny pin prick in the middle but it’s hard to see. Possibly a spider bite? Anyone seen anything like this before?

You may be right about a possible insect bite. It is also possibly a mild case of fowl pox.

I am thinking it is fowl pox. The bump has now turned red. And now after investigating, I did find a sore on one of the other turkeys. It is not raised like the other one and has already scabbed over. The pic with the red circle on top is a different turkey than the one with it around the eye.
