    As a new turkey flock owner I am wondering if the veterans will give me some advice on what to keep on the shelf in case it is needed. I just lost most of my 2 month old flock to
    what I believe was Coccidiosis....I treated the remaining three with tetracycline then learned that I need some Sulmet to kill the bacteria. These three are doing fine and dandy. So I do have Sulmet and Tetracycline on hand now. I just got new turkeys today --very blessed to find them and very happy with them.
