I am raising my first turkeys, which are now 5 weeks old. I just put a group of them outside yesterday for the first time and had a problem. When I went back out, 2 were OK, 2 were injured on their necks. I think the turkeys stuck their necks out of the chain link pen and one of our dogs bit them (only thing I can think of). One turkey has minor wounds and should be fine if no infection. The other has a severed windpipe. Somehow it is still alive after about 24 hours and is eating/drinking/walking around normally. It is currently breathing out of a hole in its neck. Is there anything I can do for it? Can you super glue the trachea back together???
