My son is raising Broad Breasted Giant White turkeys for 4-H. We have had Royal Palm Turkeys, chickens, and guineas for years, but this is a first w/ the giant white. Anyway, I have no idea what blackhead looks like (though I know all of the symptoms from every book and every post I've read-so i've got the symptoms covered.) However, I've never actually seen a turkey or another bird with blackhead. My son's giant white's beaks have turned black right at the base-where it meets the head though they otherwise seem healthy. Giant white turkeys have pink beaks though-right? I will be giving them cayenne pepper today either way, but I wanted to know if this was normal. I feel like I'm going crazy trying to find a photograph of a turkey with blackhead, which must be impossible! I do not have a photo with me of his turkeys, but will try to get on that. Thanks!
