possible disease?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
A few weeks ago I noticed a chicken keeping it's eye closed. As I kept watch in it became swollen but I thought the Turkey pecked her eye. Now yesterday I noticed another with a spot by its Beek and one under its eye. And today the Turkey has the same spot on its throat and another chicken seemed to have trouble seeing on one side. It's eye was just slightly cloudy and had tint bubbles that looked like soap in her eye. I don't know what could be wrong. I've read many things but no diffinative answers. Any thoughts?

I'm not sure but it sounds like fowl pox which is viral.. Nothing much you can do but keep them isolated warm and maybe give them vitamins... It usually goes away on its own.. Keep a look out that it doesn't turn into a bacterial infection that may require antibiotics. Good luck.

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join the flock! I'm sorry to hear your flock is under the weather hugs.gif I too agree that this could be fowl pox or it could be a respiratory infection. Resp infections can also cause the eyes to bubble. Could you post some pics? This would really help. You can also drop by the emergencies injuries disease cure section.

Good luck fl.gif

Please do post on the emergencies thread,  photos are good if you have them to help make a diagnosis.    You may want to post also on the "Turkey thread," to ask about your turkey. Some folks keep chickens and turkeys separated because chickens can carry   "Blackhead disease" to them.  I don't think this is what your turkey is developing but, it would be good to ask.
