Help please! Chicken!!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi! I have this blind chicken (she is blind in both eyes). This morning when I went to let her out her left eye was sealed closed with this weird white stuff. It wasn't goopy. It almost looked like fur covering her eye sad.png Can anyone please tell me what it is and if there is eye drops or any sort of medicine that will help!!!

It almost looks like feather down.  Have you tried warm compresses to the eye to see if you can remove the goop?  If you can get the eye cleaned up, apply some antibiotic ointment.  By the look of her comb and head, other birds have peen pecking at her - I would separate her from the flock.

Were you able to 'unstick' the eye and apply ointment?

I would suggest making a charcoal slurry and a compress. Put the drops into her eyes, (if you can) then put a warm compress over her. Don't let  her go back with the rest of the flock till she is FULLY healed.
