    About 3 weeks ago I visited my moms flock and she has a 1.5-2 yr old royal palm turkey (Hercules). It was raining really bad and cold outside as we live in the desert, so we went to fix the roof and noticed him foaming at the eyes, I wiped the foam away with a towel and the eye looked fine no swelling and no weezing, sneezing or coughing ect.. Now he is fine no foam or any other symptoms. He is the only turkey on the property and is kept with chickens. My mom rescued this turkey, when she first got him he was skin and bones with no feathers so I would not be surprised if he is a carrier of some CRD, but is it possible that he has no CRD and this is just a reaction to the cold? I have raised chickens my whole life but not too sure with turkeys as I have only raise one female. Any info is greatly appreciated. TIA.
