    If turkeys are like chickens. Which I know nothing about turkeys, could it also be cocci? If so it needs to be treated fast. I'm sure a turkey person can chime in.

    I dont know too much about turkeys as ours are only 6 weeks old. but when we ordered them we were told to have Sulmet on hand. Luckily we never needed it But I have it just in case You put 2 tablespoons in a gallon of water for coccidiosis Also are you feeding medicated feed. We were told to do that as well Hope this helps or someone with more experience comes along Micki

    you could go ahead and start cocci treatment (if it is cocci you should not wait as it kills quick)... but do get a faecal!!! (as some internal parasites will also cause bloody poos!)
