pink tumor under eye with eye almost completely swollen shut -- canker?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

My 4 month old Barnvelder started out with a small bump under her eye which in 3 days swelled 4x the size and her eye is now open just a slit.  I've heard you can slit the skin and push this hard tumor out.  Is this a successful procedure?  She's on her 4th day of metronidazole, still eating and socializing but am worried she'll lose her eye.  Not really any pus but the bulge is a shiny pink and hard.  Can't figure out how she got this as everything I've read says it's transferred via water but my girls are fully enclosed so no pigeon or wild bird has had access to their water.  Thank you in advance for sharing your knowledge, I'm a newbie!

Is it possible to post a picture? You may get some help if someone could see what you are describing.

Could you tell me how to post a picture please? My tech department has left for school and she was in bed last night when I posted! A picture I think would be very helpful and I have one on my phone I just don't know how to attach it . Thanks!

Maybe you could ask the poster and see what she did and how it turned out?
