Hi I just brought home three 2 1/2month old bourbon red turkeys to add to my existing flock. I sent my husband to go pick them up but to make sure to look them over from head to toe to see if any ovious signs of sickness were there . Needless to say he must have glanced at them and said yup there pretty ill take em lol. Im not really laughing The turkeys have a horrible cough and snot bubbles coming out their nostrils and crust on the beaks. I immediately started them on tylan 50 and they are in quarentine far from my other flocks. My question is, is Tylan 50 the appropriate med to have them on(its what I had on hand) and also do you all think they will be fine to put with my other birds in a few weeks or is it too risky to put them in even after treatment? Any and all suggestions comments tips advice is welcome. I love all my existing flock members, Id be heart broken if I got them sick.
