Hi I am new to having chickens as pets, but i love them, however my plymouth rock called Rosie (on my photos), has a swelling under eye. All her under eye has swelled up around the red bit, i took her to the vets 2 weeks ago which gave her some slow release antibiotics, as she said it could have been blocked scinus or an infection. The vet did say she was a domestic animal vet but she would still see Rosie. Rosies eye has swelled up even more now and i dont know what to do. I have seperated her from my other 6 chickens, and left her just one chicken friend to keep her company, i also have to throw away the eggs. i would be most grateful if anyone would advise me on what i could try or do next. Thank you
swollen under eye?
Is the eye draining any kind of fluid? If it's some sort of eye infection, then I would recommend using Vetricyn to clean the eye up. They sell it at most feed stores.
I'm the proud owner of a flock of wonderful chickens, ducks, and geese, 5 rabbits, 1 dog, 1 cockatiel, 1 betta, and 2 cats.
