    Sorry to hear 1 of your chicks isn't doing well. The ER forum you were given a link to is a good place to find some answers.

    Best of luck!

    Hi,

    redsoxs has pointed you in the right direction but in the meantime...[​IMG]

    You could also start a new thread in the Turkey forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/20/turkeys

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
