    Can you post some pictures? Turkeys are prone to sinus problems, but without at least a pictures, no one can be of much help!

    Found this for peafowl, probably about the right size fowl:

    "For my birds when they were sick, we put them on baytril tablets. We did one per day for five days. It cleared them up perfectly. I also have used tylan 50. 3 ccs down their throat for three days and it also worked great and fast. My birds were fighting CRD so it should fix your problem."

    Colloidal silver works wonders if you don't want antibiotics.

    I'm having the same problem with one of my turkeys. I was told i could give him Agrimycin 200 which i think is also called LA-200. Has anyone else ever heard of this?
