    I have a turkey with upright posture, head pulled close to the body, and the sudden body action of someone with the hiccups. Is this a possibility?

    They don't get hiccups. They can get different respriratory issues, none of them good. Catch it and listen to it breath. listen for wheezing, or a rattle in the chest.

    yep, I agree,
    Some Tylan in him water should help, most any antibiotic for respitory problems will work though
