    Don't forget that a turkey can change the color of its head depending on its mood.

    Hey guys,

    I've given her some antibiotics via injection so waiting to see what happens!

    She has this grown liquid coming out of her mouth lately, not sure if due to her sneezing, and also some pinky coloured poo.

    I'll leave the antibiotics to work, but would it be worth using some coccistat after a few days? The jab was a one off dose, as per directed.

    Sorry for the new post

    Hey guys, thought I'd let you know that the amoxicillin worked! She's back to her normal self again!

    The Male has come down with whatever she had now but given him a shot and will see how he gets on!

    Still no idea what it was though!
