In the Brooder
- Feb 26, 2013
I noticed this morning that my Turkens (approximately a month old) seem to have bloody welts where the feathers are growing out around the base of their necks. They both have the same marks in the same spots. They are in the brooder with some white leghorns, but the turkens don't seem to be getting beaten up on. I am assuming since the spots are similar on both its a bread thing--does anyone have experience with Turkens--is this normal? I'm wondering if it happens with the other chicks too but we don't notice because they don't have the bare skin?? Just a thought. They seem to be healthy otherwise. I sprayed them with a wound cleanser like I do if a chick gets pecked or wounded badly just in case.
