Due to some bad timing, I ended up with 11 meat chicks and 6 young turkeys at the same time I had an older bird come up with the flu and die. We lost all of the chicks and 5 of the 6 turkeys, as well as some older chickens and a couple other chicks we had. All of the birds who had the flu are now either totally recovered or dead. But I have one young turkey, Black Spanish, about 2 months old, with some nasty-looking welts on her head. One eye is swollen shut and the other is close to it. My husband's grandfather used to raise chickens and turkeys, and from the description he said it was mosquito bites. Given the absurd mosquito population here right now, I figured he was right, so I started coating her little head in diaper rash cream as a barrier against the mosquitos. She wasn't looking better after a couple days of that, so I brought her inside the house. Unfortunately she's alone, as she's the only turkey left. After a day and a half in the bath tub, she doesn't look any better at all. She's still eating and drinking (or she was as of this morning, I don't watch her constantly). I keep having to open the one eye to drain it, but she has no snotty nose at all. Just the huge lumps on her head. Is her issue really just the mosquitos? Or is something else wrong with her? I would hate to lose this one too, as hubby and I have become quite attached to her.
