So three days ago a big lump in the side of my turkeys neck popped up I think it’s a respiratory infection but my mom thinks it’s a piece of food or something like that but if it is a respiratory infection what should I do. I’d rather him not but be killed he is like my pet he’s very social.

Check how it feels. My guess is that it will feel like it is full of air. Turkeys can develop air leakage and swell up like a balloon. If it is an air leak, the treatment is to lance the area to allow the air to escape.
