    Our turkey suddenly has a swollen head and neck along with the rest of his body! I looks like it happened over night. It may have started yesterday, thinking back on when i picked him up he was very swollen where his crop is and on the other side. Now this morning, his head is really swollen with what feels like fluid, bright red spots along with a red type glow on the the head and neck. His feathers are droopy and he is wanting to just sleep. What could cause this and is there anyway to cure it or are we going to have to cull him? TIA
