    Found one of my 2month old turkeys laying on the ground not able to get up. We've had a lot of rain the last couple days and the Temps have dropped significantly. I thought I was going to lose him so I gave him 1/2cc of penicillin and immediately thought I killed him! His eyes closed and he fell over completely limp. He was still breathing though. About 10 minutes later I picked him up to put him in a cage and his eyes opened and he started to try to move. After I put him in the cage he just laid there for about 5 min then started flopping around like he was having a siezures. Now he's just laying there but still breathing and eyes closed. Anyone have any ideas what could be wrong with him? He has no discharge anywhere besides poop on his belly and not coughing or sneezing of any kind. Please help!
