My friend has a 3 month old turkey who cannot walk but can move his feet if he is turned over on his back. He has yellow frothy poop and feels like he has a fever. His comb is pale.
any ideas.
confused

Is this a turKEY, or a turKEN? Turkeys don't have combs, they have snoods. If it's a turkey, it could be blackhead. If a turken, it could be any number of things, including mareks.
