    I have 6 bourbon red about 2 and a half months from hatch one was picking its foot until it was bleeding washed with warm water and used triple antibiotic ointment also the same turkey has a sore spot in front of its eye it looked infected so I fed duracillin for 2 days I was thinking about clipping flight feathers they get out every day (its a 10 foot fence) any experienced comments welcome

    You're brave I only have 6 ft fences lots of dogs foxes coyote and coons I clipped the wings right away just on one side and I need to do it again I see them trying.....just be careful of the pin feathers they will bleed I just use scissors when they get big I hope they don't try....wishing
