    2 of my 3 turkey hens are sick! They have swollen faces, running nose and are losing their feathers! The third is completely fine. The turkeys live with the chickens but none of the chickens are catching the sickness. Does anyone have any idea what it is?
    They are still eating and drinking and moving around. We have no vets in our area that care for poultry! Has anyone else had this problem and found a remedy? I'm at a loss and don't know what to do to help them.

    Id get them theire own pen and treat them seperatly. Try some antibiotics mixed in the water, you can find some for poultry at your local feed store, it's usually a powder in a packet.
