Whats the treatments available for lice on Turkeys?
I've never had this issue and guess it came with a gobbler I acquired recently.
I have bantams and Muscovy ducks as well but they are in separate areas from the turkeys. I will check them tomorrow in case.
I have 3 guinea fowl in the turkey yard which I will check as well.

I'd appreciate advice.

Thanks

Regards Brian

Hi Brian and welcome to BYP.
I don't know anything about turkeys in particular but I reckon the treatment would be the same as for chooks. I'd either spray them with Avian Insect Liquidator or spray or dip them in permethrin solution. Have a look HERE
