    You might also want to start them on Baytril. Almost all birds with blackhead will get a secondary E. coli infection, and for that you will need something like Baytril, or maybe eben your Zactran? Talk to your vet.

    Thought you all might want to see what Marek's tumors of the liver look like:

    FWIW, the bird with that liver also had ocular and cutaneous Marek's.

    This is good as my hens liver did not look like this. I would much rather deal with BH than Mareks.

    This is an amazing thread! Thank you to all who have posted here!!

    4-5 years ago, I had an issue with blackhead in turkey poults. I chalked it up to inexperience and drastically changed how I raised any chicks, poults, or peachicks after that. It's very helpful to be reminded though that even with a good worming program and good quarantining practices that these illnesses still can show up. It's so easy to get complacent when things are going well.

    Thank you again!!
