Been a while since I posted, huh?

Anyways. One of my turkeys has developed what looks like a giant blackhead on the top of her head, kinda like a bumblefoot blackhead. I mean, like the circumference of my finger, big. Should we remove it? I don't want it to get pecked by the other turkey or the chickens when we move them into the pasture.

If we should remove it, how would we do it?

How long has she had that? Might be the start our foul pox as Goat Hiker mentioned. It's not a huge growth though? I'll poke around and see if I can find somthing that points to an possible answer.

I agree. If you have access to quality essential oils can add oregano to their drinking water.

Thank you for the info. Since I have no clue how long it's been, I think the best thing is to just keep her and her lotmates isolated until it's run its course

Of it has been there even a week and no change... not foul pox. Think of it as chicken pox in humans. Spreads very rapidly and is noticable quickly spreading. ;).
