    I just have a real quick question to ask. My turkeys have been attacked by my rooster, and they have injuries to the eye and neck. The only time they are around my chickens, or ducks, is when im feeding them, and when it's time for them to go into their pen at night. They're a few months old already. What kind of treatments can i use to heal the wounds? And what can i do about my rooster? I can't get rid of him since he's my dads favorite.

    Your turkeys need to be separated from the rooster before he seriously injures or blinds them. Unless the wounds are serious, they should heal by themselves. You can apply topical antibiotic cream if necessary.
