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!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.
