    Hi all, 1 year old male turkey with a cloudy eye. It looks like a cloud on the top of his eye. He blinks with that eye more than normal so I know its bothering him. He runs into things so I think he cant see out of that side as well. Can Turkeys get cataracts? Is this a worm? Injury? Has anyone see anything like this? Currently treating with with Terramycin eye ointment twice daily No discharge or swelling, eye has been cloudy for two weeks. Otherwise eating normally, maybe a little less frisky,

    Any thoughts? See photos below...
