    Ok, We Just Traded Some Chickens For A Few Turkeys..

    The Problem Is An Adult Gobbler, Keeps Going In Left Circles... Big Circles Then Small , Then He Falls Down ... He Does Not Seem To Be Blind, He Is Not Running Into Things????.. Where We Got Him , They Were In A Small Building Maybe 8 X 10.. 10 Foot Roof...

    We Have Wormed Him And His Mate , The Female Has No Symptoms...has Anyone Heard Of This And How Can I Help Him....

    Help , I Feel So Bad For Him...

    I'm sorry, I have no idea but thought it might be worth bumping this in case anyone missed it.
    How is he today? Any change?

    I know that some turkeys when they are poults can get wry neck, and if they grow out of it it can reoccur during times of stress. Try adding some vitamins to his water, especially vit E.
