    I have a very weak/sick Sweetgrass turkey poult. I have four total and three are doing fine but one started acting very lethargic yesterday. I gave it a few drops of nutri drench and put some vet Rx on its beak and it perked up about 15 min later and started eating. It was still wobbly but it's eyes opened and it looked to be improving. This morning it was still ok. My husband was doing the rounds and found it very weak again with closed eyes and barely moving. We have repeated the previous steps from yesterday but it won't open its eyes and it keeps opening its mouth. We got three drops of nutri drench down, and now we are trying to get it to drink water with ACV, nutri drench and sugar. Any advice on what's going on/ how to help it?? First time we have had turkeys. It's acting like its delirious.
