    So my broad breasted white turkey is sick again. 2 weeks ago i thought she had blackhead based one her behavior and poop. I treated her with fishzole and she got better. Today i noticed her sick again. She won't leave the coop and her poop has gone from nice and solid to almost liquid over night. I wonder if the safeguard I'm treating the flock with could have something to do with it. I put safeguard pour on in their water yesterday. 2 weeks aago i also put safeguard in their water and a few days later she got sick. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions?

    I doubt the Safeguard is making her sick. How much did you put in the water?

    I put 6cc in my 2 gallon waterer and 9cc in my 3 gallon.

    That amount is unlikely to treat much, and almost certainly won't make a bird sick. I just gave my 30 pound turkey 7 cc, and she's fine.

    Would be best to have a vet look at her and or her poop.
