    Out of our six turkeys, four Burbon Reds adn two B.B. Whites, one of them has black lumps on its face and neck. It is eating just fine and seems happy enough but as I know nothing about pox I thought I would ask if its a problem for them? I plan to eat them when they grow up and would hate to loose them before time.

    Never mind, just did a search and got my answer.

    DONT PANIC! She will get over it [​IMG]

    Good thing too, my BBW's are ready for freezer camp but I simply dont have time right now to kill them and didnt want to loose them to illness. Have too much invested in feed, if nothing else.
