I have a pet male black turkey. He is a big pet and is loved by our family. He showed up at my mom and dad‘s house when my dad was in hospice and has been a great source of laughter and entertainment when it was hard to find throughout dad‘s illness and death. My 92 year old mom just loves him. I know very little about turkeys and I am hoping I can find some guidance here. His name is Gilbert. I have been treating him for what I assume are mites with diamatacious earth. I have only been doing this for a few days and it doesn’t really seem to bother him. Does anyone else use this method to control mites? Also I am attaching a photograph of his waddle that has white, raised spots. What are they? Are they normal? Thanks so much.
