Good morning. I am new at raising turkeys. Last week I noticed one not roosting in the trees with the others. Then I noticed it walking like it was dizzy. Then it started flopping over when it walked. Its neck is not straight like the others it is pulled in(only way I could explain it) It is eating and drinking and its poop is runny but no blood, its like water. Now I have noticed another turkey kind of a little off balance and not roosting in the trees just on the ground. The weather has been very hot and we have lots of smoke from fires. I also have let them out a couple times to free range. Can anyone please give me an idea of what this could be and how to fix it, if possible.
