    My turkey has bubbles coming out of one of her eyes.I looked at it and don't see anything in it. She has been rubbing it alot on her wing. There is nothing wrong with the other eye. Any ideas?

    One of my turks had one eye partially shut with bubbles coming out, yesterday. Turns out she had a fox tail stuck under her eye. I removed it and treated her with sterile tears. 5 minutes later, she was fine...

    She is better now...it was a tiny scratch on her bottom eyelid. The eye worm idea was really grossing me out but I don't think it is in the northwest is it? sounds like mostly in the southern states. Just glad she is better:)
