Eye problem.... Looks very bad!!! PLEASE HELP

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi Everyone, 

I bought 3 chicks a couple of months back (when they were around 1 week old). Recently one of my chickens had one side of her face swollen and her beak wouldn't close properly. The swelling has decrease but now it looks like her face kind of collapsed on its self, her eye won't open properly and her beak seems to be deformed... SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME, This is the first time something serious has happened and I have had kept chicken for over 6 years.

 

Details about the chick:

Name: Chloe

Age: Approx. 3-4 months

Breed: We asked the seller, and the only info they gave that they were cross breeds

Before: She was a healthy chook, was very active and playful

Now: Struggles to drink, feed and makes weird noises

 

Attached are Pictures of her now:

14 people have looked at your post so far, and no comments...I don't know what to say either!  I'm posting to bump it up.  Hopefully a more experienced person sees this!

 

Good Luck! :hugs

Did the beak scissor like that after the left side of the birds face collapsed or did it gradually do that? Do you have any pictures of the face when swollen?

Make sure it's not a worm eye.  I would just do a drop of tylan 50 in it.

The left side of her face was Swollen as well as the inside of her beak. Her 'mouth' began to stay open because of the swelling and After the swelling came down it began to do that...
