Black spots on plumage BSWs

Post by Killerbunny » Wed Aug 10, 2016 8:25 am

Hey Al,
Remember last year when we were all freaked out by our oil spray turkeys. I changed my feed supplier last fall and this year I have no black spots and the youngsters are all from the same breedings plus some ADxAT hens. Maybe Troy knows what he's talking about LOL!

What was in the feed that caused this?

Nothing IN the feed just the wrong protein levels. CHeck Troys website for feeding and conditioning.
