    I got a bb white from a guy to have for thanksgiveing. It's been a few weeks sence I got him and I noticed when he breaths I hear a nasily weeze. And I think i hear him cough a little. What's wrong with him?

    Is he too warm? what type of shed/barn or what do youhave him in? we raised BB whites-- We used only straw-- no HAY- hay works with animals the way hayfever works on people- can't breath. Also try a little apple vinegar in the water-- 1 tablesoon to 1 gal of water. We fed only Blue Seal Turkey Grower Pellets- we had 2 butcher dates-- 8/22 and 11/3. Different age batches. the biggest on our first butcher was 32 lbs at 4 mo old. the last butcher the biggest was 46lbs at 4 mo old. Almost lost the big guy. Tom took a beating from Spanky the other tom.. Mom was there to fix him up and nurse him back up and around. The will also breath funny if they are nervus. We play a radio in everyone of our animal sheds. 3 coops, pig & turkey barn. Radios going 24/7- they all like country music but not real loud. good luck
