I was out checking the birds yesterday and noticed one of my turkey hens who has been broody for a verry long time was off the nest. She had two large knots on either side of her neck, right under her jawline, and one on top of her head. I felt them and they were VERY soft and made a bubbly sound, like foam, and I was able to "massage" them away. I went out today to find them back where they were in the first place. She is eating and drinking, and otherwise going about her buisness as normal, does anyone know what this might be??? She doesn't appear to have been attacked, she is on flock raiser, and it is about 105-115 during the day here average. She has plenty of shade and water, but, like my other turkeys preferrs to spend the day in and out of the duck pond.( They must get some strange looks from the ducks ! )

Hi Eowyn,
Have you tried the "search" on this site? Also, has a poultry disease list with information about how to identify and treat, etcetera. Good luck,
