Why is my pullet's eye closed?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I walked into my coop yesterday to find my red sex link pullet, Sunny, with her eye closed. It's only her right eye. She opens it occasionally for a few seconds at a time, but then she closes it again. When it's open, it looks normal. What's wrong with her?

We have to remember, it was all started by a mouse

I've seen one of my Wyandotte hens do this occasionally, with no problem. However, it is more likely that your hen has a mild injury to her eye (or near her eye), or she is developing a respiratory disease. I would consider isolating her, observing her for further symptoms, and possibly getting some antibiotics (like Tylan or Terramycin) to treat her with.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
