Hi!

My turkey hen looks like she was stung by something. Her eye is swollen and partially open. Wondering if I need to do anything? She could barely open her eye last night, but looks like it's partially open. Been keeping an eye on her....she is eating and drinking ok, but mostly laying down, not doing much, poor thing. :(

Thanks for any suggestions!

Are there any other symptoms? Does she seem mucousy or gasping for breath?
It looks more like pus in her eye than a sting. I would be concerned about something like mycoplasma—I'm not familiar with many other turkey diseases though. Are any other birds affected?
