Why do my chickens get bubble eye?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have 9 laying hens, (3 white leghorns, 2 brown leghorns, 2 blackrock, & 2 plymouth barred rock).
My question is, why do they keep getting bubble eye? This is the 3rd time in the 18 months i've been keeping them. On the last 2 occasions i have got the medication from the vet, & will again. Just wondering where i'm going wrong.

I believe "bubbly" eyes are a sign of disease (like a chicken cold). I would recommend posting in the "Emergencies/Diseases/Injuries and Cures" section.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

sounds like something they keep passing on to each other.  Do they exhibit any respiratory problems?
