    You can use Vetericyn eye wash or even a non-medicated eye drops for people.

    Birds can survive with one eye but are more vulnerable to blind side attacks.

    Any of the ones that are not medicated. They are just a saline solution.

    Hi R2elk...I wanted to ask to a question about turkeys. We sold our 9 4 month old turkeys and two toms yesterday. The females are walking around the property annoyingly making that screetch noise they make clearly looking for the babies and maybe the toms. Are they really that "family oriented"? How long will we have to deal with this obnoxious chaos?
