Guys, remember the very young Holland White turkey I said had spurs but looked like a hen ? Well, it got throat worms, or what I thought were throat worms, so I seeped the tobacco from a cigarette in some warm water overnight and poured a couple tablespoons down it's throat. It was the only one with any symptoms and the only symptom was that it kept holding it's mouth open and looked like it was gaging. After I got a good hold on the bird, I held it's mouth open and gently poured the cool tea down it's throat. It pulled away and shook it's head and I thought I would have to make more, because very little was swallowed. It coughed a bit and walked away. The phone rang at that time and I hurried to answered it. It was my daughter, calling to say she had a lot of extra carrots, celery and cabbage from her garden, for the rabbits. I hung up quickly and went back to the yard to find the turkey laying a few feet from where I had given him the tobacco tea, on the ground dead! I knew at that point, I had done something wrong. It happens and he was the youngest and smallest of 24 hatched last summer in a staggered hatching, from my original breeders. Since I had 14 toms and had not planned on breeding the runt, it is not a great loss. I chalked it up to a lesson learned. NEVER LEAVE A TURKEY YOU JUST GAVE TOBACCO JUICE TO ! I brought him in and took the head off to bleed it out, convinced it had to be a tom, Since I had counted 13 hens and 13 other toms, out of which I had first identified as 13 hens and 14 toms. He was a very light skinny long legged bird and I could have dry plucked him, but I did scald him with the faucet water in the utility room sink plus added a small pasta pot of almost boiling water. After he was plucked, I opened him up and this is what I found inside: a normal size heart and gizzard, a normal looking lungs and intestines, a very small liver, that looked like only one side of the liver and a very large gall bladder, that squirted all over the wall, when I tried to remove it, very bright green, bile. There were 2 other items inside the turkey. One was this mass of hard lumpy knobby hard things with what looks like an egg yolk attached and a soft ball shaped mass about twice the size of a golf ball, that was solid but on the soft side that you can see here: The rest of the internals looked like this: Please notice the spur in the third picture and the yolk in the last. I haven't seen an ovary this large, if that is what it is and I do not know what the other thing that you see cut in half is! Do you think it was a tom or a hen and do you know what the other 2 items in question are? Does anyone know what it was suffering from, besides me? LOL I did not see any worms at all so I guess I drowned it in the tablespoon of tobacco tea?
