One Sick Turkey

The turkey tom is sick.  He's either eaten something that hasn't agreed with him, or the fresh green grass has killed all his beneficial bacteria.  Most likely a condition called sour crop.  We've been tubing him and giving his crop  salt water rinses, and then some yogurt.  He's been breeding the girls for a couple of weeks now, so if he dies, we should still have some fertile eggs.  But We're hoping for a full recovery.
