We are new to this and could use somr help. We have a small mixed flock that was healthy until he got a pair of Bantams from a local farm. Birds appeared to be healty when w got them. The hen (pictured) is in the worst shape. It started a couple days after we got them. He noticed the roster had a crusty film on one eye. We took the bird bac to the place we got it from. She kept it and gave it antibiotics for a couple days and then we got it back. Since then the hen got the same and seems to be worse than the rooster. Both eyes are like in the picture. She can open them but prefers not to. I have been researching the prob and have been treating the eyes with solution to clean and neosporine to medicate. Have also noticed the foul smell and couch or sneeze from the rooster an started them on Sulmet (antibiotic for respitory disease) Birds have been seperate from rest of flock since we got them however I feel there may have been interaction between sick birds, flock and my son. Treating all with antibiotics for last two days as precaution as I have seen the cough orsneeze from our Rhode Island red rooster. Aslo: when cleaning the eyes there is a white pus (or worm?) Can anyone help give us some advise on the situation. Like I said - we are new to this and this is our first year/summer that we have been getting eggs. Since starting on meds I gave kept those eggs seperate from the rest. Are these eggs safe to eat?
Thanks for any and all help!!! Kraig & Dakota(son)
