    I have a red burbon who is a year old, very tame and sociable. Yesterday I noticed she cannot cluck, she opens her mouth but nothing come out? She's eating and drinking?

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm sorry your turkey is sick. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about turkeys (never had any), but I would suggest posting this on our turkey section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/20/turkeys and taking advantage of our experts there. You might also want to post it on our Emergencies, Diseases, Injuries, and Cures section at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. I hope your turkey recovers. Good luck.

    You've been given good links, so I will just say Welcome to Backyard Chickens. Is it possible she swallowed something she shouldn't have ?
