    Hi all
    Harold, our farmyard turkey has swollen eyelids, and his goblet and feed are swollen and hard too...
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Hi :welcome

    Oh wow that does look painful for Harold! I'm afraid I'm not a turkey person but the link that NorthFLChick left for you is a great place to ask all your turkey questions. I'm sure the turkey keepers there will be able to help you.

    Wishing you the very best of luck with Harold, I hope you are able to get him well again soon :fl

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I'm a chicken person and don't know much about turkeys (never had any), but definitely post on our turkey link that NorthFlChick left with you and take advantage of our turkey experts there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    I wonder if that is what they called "Blackhead disease," in turkeys. You may be able to get some info by putting that in the search box. I hope your turkey will be okay.
