I wake up to see my 3month old rio grande poult (Turkeless, like Herclules) covered in sores. It’s cold right now where I’m at and my other two turkeys are fine

That looks like fowl pox. If your turkey is eating, drinking, and acting normal it will recover on it's own in a few weeks. Watch for signs of secondary infection, especially around the eyes, but I think he'll be okay!

Thanks! I have already had problems with fowl pox on my hens. The turkey is acting just like always. He is very lovable and is a nuasance to all the goats and sheep. One of my bourbon reds tries to fight my peachick sometimes though. They all are in the same pen, the peafowl chickens nd turkeys
