How are they now? I had a cockerel who ended up with a raging ear infection! I couldn't find the right mess in town. So I went with amoxicillin started with big dose! Then went back to get more from the feed store. None of us new if it would work. Even peeps at the feed store. We ended up 7 days of mess. Day 3 I was able to just pull it out on its own almost. He knew we were helping so he was a good boy. We also stuffed his ear full for about 9 days with neospirin. He's perfect now! The pills were 32 cents. Just FYI pretty cheap ! Here's what came out of olive
this was after. His ear was still pretty open. After a couple days it closed . Me he's free ranging not aware he's a cockerel getting beat up by the hens. He's super sweet to! He's the first cockerel that will let us hold him. Eats out of our hand ect... I did hatch him so he's been spoiled. Good luck to you! And your flock! Glad you got infection out!
