    i'd haveno problems with it. In fact i had 3 out of 5 turkeys for Thanksgiving that were starting to have issues about 2 weeks before processing day. I did not treat and they all turned out great.

    thanks for the answer. I usually just cull them for dog food because i wasnt sure. i never saw much reason for treating them cause once they get it its in them for life. best cure for the flock is cull.
