    I have mammoth bronze turkeys my jake got his head stuck in fence today, and as he panicked to free himself tore a part of his waddle about 2 inches up neck, is there anything I can do? Has anyone experienced this? Or is he done for?

    I'm hoping it will heal on its own, but am concerned about infection, it is very swollen

    I would see how he is in the morning. And you might want to repost this thread in the injuries and disease section. Good luck!!
