One of my Blue Slates hatched with a deformity.... he has only one eye and is mostly blind. He's grown beautifully and I love him bunches.... despite of the deformity. I've always given him extra attention. I've hand-raised him since hatching. For awhile, I didn't think he would survive long. But he's thriving very well. We built him a special enclosure and have raised his sister along with him. He made his first gobbles a few weeks ago! I give them both lots of exercise, and he likes to flap his wings and run and hop around. I My other turkeys have accepted them both, but I cannot let him freely roam like I allow them to do during the day. He's bonded to me (like my other 4 turkeys). He loves being pet a lot. I just would like to know if anyone else has dealt with a similar situation.
