Rooster has swollen eyelid from fighting with another rooster.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Our Speckled Sussex rooster was injured on his comb and face during a fight with another rooster. His left eye is swollen shut. I've been putting triple antibiotic ointment on his eyelid for a couple of days now. I separated him from all others as soon as I found him injured. I noticed today that where he slept last night there is green poop. Does this mean an infection and if so what antibiotic can I put in his water? I have Oxytetracycline HCI powder on hand.

Cat (that's me) wife to a grumbling DH, mom to 2 grown children, YaYa to our Granddaughter. Our latest chicken count about 70. If you live in Ga, add yourself to our Yo Georgians map! https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=895226
