    My family and I got 30 chicks and 3 turkeys two weeks ago (the turkeys are two weeks old) and we put them all in the same cage. Just today we saw that one of the turkeys wasn't looking too good. He/she was hunched over, and when my mom put food in the dish he stood up but was a little shaky. She picked him up and some murky colored fluid came out of his mouth. He is sleeping on my lap right now, and I'm giving him some water every few minutes. I saw somewhere that I should give him some milk or plain yogurt, but wouldn't that be a too drastic food change? Does his sickness have to do with him being with baby chickens? Please help me if you can, thanks!
