    Hi everyone, I am new here. I bought a greater white turkey a few weeks ago. I noticed he starts sneezing and mucus running from his nose. I believe he got a cold. What can I give him? I thought about boiling milk with onions, but I need a second opinion.

    Thank you. He's a real softie and I lost one a few years ago. I don't want to lose another turkey. I'll be sure to look through.

    I don't think poultry do well with milk but, I'm not certain. You may also want to post on the "turkey thread," in case they recognize what your turkey's problem may be. Just put "turkey thread," in the search box above and it will come up. Hope he will recover soon.
