    I picked up a 2-3 week old Emu the other day. She seems very shaky on her legs, and does notseem to eat or drink unless I put the dish directly in front if her. Even then she will sometimes "miss " the bowl. She seems to stumble over things as well. I know a chicken had pecked at her one eye, but it didnt seem too bad. Now as I look in her eyes they are dark with small white dots in the middle in BOTH eyes. Is she blind??? Are Emu chicks supposed to have white dots or full dark eyes??
    What do I do with a blind Emu???

    Thanks for your help!

    She might be ok i have a half blind chicken she can only really see shadow just put the food and water in the same place every time and make sure to dip her beak in the water to let her know where it is.
