Chicken is eating and drinking fine. At first I thought the chicken had lost its eye.
It has lost all of its feathers around its eye.
Chicken is a cross between a game hen and polish rooster. Age of chicken is between 8 months and 1 year. After reading on the many forums on this site. I have since wormed with Wazine first, then with Safeguard. I have also used teramycin oinment on the eye.
Since using the teramycin where I thought there was no eye....there is an eye because can see it through a small opening. The way you see the eye in the pictures is the way it has been for over a week. I am looking for help from any of you.
Now, with that said i have her sister as well with a different eye problem that occurred several months ago. A hard cyst-knot formed under her eye. I tried teramycin with no results. I then tried to lance it but could not get deep enough to get anything out. The knot gets larger and smaller on its own. Chicken eats and drinks fine. Behavior is normal. So I have not messed with it anymore. It makes me wander if this cross breed just has eye problems?
