    Hi, I noticed these bumps on my Male Turkey this morning. They are small, dark red/black, and are raised. One did "pop" while I was holding him for pictures and a very small amount of blood came out. My 2 female turkey don't have the spots, and none of my chicken seem to have anything. He is acting totally normal, and from the best I can tell, I don't see any odd poop. He is kept with 2 other turkey, some chicken, and 3 muscovy ducks. He is a pet, and we would really like to treat him, as well as avoid anything spreading. Thanks in advance for any help! 20190520_094639.jpg 20190520_094635.jpg 20190520_094649.jpg

    At least some of it is dried blood. You can clearly see a small cut in one place. The remainder may be from insect bites.
