    I have two BBW turkeys I got in March. One seems to be sick :( . Our weather went from 110 and dry to 80 and horrible rainstorms almost overnight. My turkeys sleep on top of my coop (I can't seem to stop them) so they got a few nights of bad down pours. Two days ago one started hiding in a corner and lost intrest in food. Very lethargic. Got her up and eating a small bit today. Came home late and found her sleeping in the yard so gathered her up and moved her into the coop. I could hear the fluid in her lungs as she coughed and wheezed. I'm not sure if I should dose her with antibiotics, what kind, or where if I need use a injectable. I has originally planed to butcher her...but don't want to eat a sick bird.
