    These bumps have been present for a few weeks but are becoming bigger and spreading slowly. The young turkeys have been living with their hatch mates, which happen to be chicken chicks, in a grow-out coop and have not ranged at all with my adult flock. There are 2 other young turkeys with similar, but smaller lumps. Is this turkey pox? The beginnings of blackhead? Please advise.

    It's a infection, u can wash these bumps with water of KMnO4 (potassium permagnet) twice a day for 1 or 2 weeks. your turkey will be fine soon !
