I have a turkey that had a bout of the trots about 4 months ago. She has it again, only this time it is more explosive, green watery poop. Does this sound like anything really serious or dangerous to my ducks or chickens? Any help would be appreciated. This has been really frustrating.

Lots of possibilities. Worms, protozoa infestation, poor gut flora, bacterial infection, ate something that didn't agree with him.

I always try yogurt first, then de-worming. Check the area he is in for spoiled feed or things he should not be eating.

She never leaves the chicken run and eats layer pellets and scratch. Sometimes I give them veggies, lettuce and/or fruit, so she scavenges whatever she can get before the chickens eat it all. I got some electrolytes at the feed store yesterday, so I am going to try that and some plain yogurt. I will also worm her, and probably the rest of the flock now that I think about it. Thanks for the help.
