    A turkey poult from a feed store had white droppings. It died. Upon inspection, I found the gallbladder was HUGE. Googling revealed white poops can be caused by a blocked bile duct. Any experience with this and the cause?
    It was one week old direct from feed store on half cracked corn and half 21% protein chick starter and lots of shavings kicked up into the feed. (animal abuse on so many levels in my opinion)
    At any rate, I am so curious as to what would have caused this. Would like some experienced opinions please.
