    Hi all!
    I need some help. My female wild turkey who is a year old is definitely sick. She is normally very adventurous and friendly. She is losing her feathers, pooping green, and very weak. She is still walking around on her own though.
    Yesterday I picked her up and a white liquid came out of her mouth.
    We started her on nutridrench last night but I'm not sure was else to do. Any and all ideas are appreciated

    Thank you!!

    Hi

    I'm not sure what to make of the white liquid. However, whenever I have a sick chicken/turkey I always feed them a high protein diet eg scrambled eggs and cooked oats with some probiotic or fermented food (yogurt) sprinkled on top. I would also add a garlic clove, a piece of aloe Vera or a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to her water.

    I hope your turkey gets better soon.
