    Hello I have a turkey hen that's head is swollen on her right side near her eye and around the right side of the beak. We think she also has a cold its been pretty chilly here lately and we put up some heat lamps for them at night. Should I put antibiotics in the water? Anything will help thanks

    Sorry there not great photos but on the first one you can see that its actually on her left side but it is really swollen I don't know if it could be a symptom to something like a respiratory infection. Anything will help.
