    My turkey acts like something is caught in his throat when he tries to gobble. This morning, when he was eating, he also sounded almost like he had a stuffy nose. Any ideas?

    go out and get close to him, put hs head up to youre ear. If he sounds congested (i'm betting he will) go buy some tylan 50 and a syringe. Give him 1cc/ml per 10lbs body weight twice a day for a week. He will be fine most likely. You can inject him in the leg or under the wing, or you can shoot it down his throat. If you inject him don't do it in the same spot all the time.
