    I have a baby turkey poult that I did not think was going to make it but after 2 days of eye droppering fructose water, he's actually improving!! He is in a coffee mug still as he is extremely wobbly but is getting stronger I think.. I just noticed he is attempting to preen.. so I'm very encouraged.. Here's the problem... he definitely isn't strong enough to put in with the others yet and really can't stay upright outside of the mug for long.. What can I give him besides the sugar water to help him get stronger? Any ideas? I'm afraid that the sugar water won't be enough to get him strong enough to eat on his own..

    THANKS!!

    One product that I buy from Tractor Supply is Nutri-Drench. It is a wonderful source of nutrients and immune system booster. I use it alot on all my birds. Good luck with it.
