    I posted last week thinking my turkey had blackhead. I dont think that is the case. She seems to be less punch drunk, she is eating well and drinking well. She is on antibiotics. The lessions are pretty nasty. Could this be a bad case of pox? I have be on this site and all over the internet trying to find pics that are simmilar. I have read all sorts of stuff, but cant seem to pin point it. Anyone see this before ?

    It almost looks more like an injury, but I dont' think you're supposed to eat it if its on antibiotics. Give it time to clear the system.

    I was planning on taking them off 5 days prior> so states the package.
    I am just tryin g to find out so as to not butcher and eat something that could harm me or my family. I guess if I dont get a overwelming response and am still in the dark I'll leave that one and wait it out. She i just getting so big she has a hard time walking.
