    Hello friends, please help!
    My Turkey won't stand and it fast losing weight.
    It is not a broad Breasted but a local African turkey. It is 15weeks old.
    I just treated it of coryza and now it won't stand. Please what home made treatments can I give it as vetinary is not near my location.

    You can try giving chopped up hard boiled eggs. Also if you can get vitamin B complex, mix it up at the rate of 1/2 tablet or capsule dissolved in one gallon of water. Do not add anything else to the water. Make it the only source of water and it should be made fresh daily.

    Severe loss of weight could be due to worms.
