Okay. No scabs, I can try, what should I be looking for?

See if the swelling is visible from inside... and access spot to drain it, pull out the infection... it looks like it is probably in his sinus cavity and not accessible, but still best to check... it would heal faster/better if the infection chunks can be removed...

Okay, good thing my Mom works for a Vet Clinic.....So I could probably take him over there so they can try to drain it.

Would it be best if I kept him inside?

If you can take him to the clinic, that would be great! Vet advice would be best...and yes, I would go ahead and keep him inside for now... you want to monitor that close anyways in case he has issues breathing past the swelling, it getting worse, etc... might want to keep his buddy with him too, just so neither stresses out being alone...

ETA: they will probably have better antibiotics for him too... smile.png

See how it's puffy on his left.

Is the swelling hard or soft? If you push on it, does any fluid come out of his nostril or eye? Sure looks like a sinus infection to me.

It's soft. No,  only when he drinks.

A trip to the vet is probably your best option...

Hello - my baby girls are about 6.5 weeks old and we have been feeding them flockraiser crumbles with extra niacin.  When should we move them to a regular feed and when should we start on a laying mash?  Any thoughts would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Start them on laying mash as soon as you get your first egg! Good luck!
