We just got 2 White Holland turkey poults on Saturday. They are now 9 days old. I've been keeping them outside in a small pen out of the sun. Today it reached 113 degrees and when i went to check on them this evening one of them threw up as soon as i picked it up. They're both walking around fine and eating great ever since i brought them inside. They both have runny/frothy/grainy mustard poop. Are they sick or did the heat get to them? Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is my first time having turkeys. I also have 6 chickens we got a couple months ago and i brought one of the pullets in the brooder with them for a few minutes to see if she liked them but then took her out. Could she have gotten them sick? I read about cayenne pepper helping sick turkeys so i put some in their water.
