You are going to have to clean out the ear to get the gunk out.  Hydrogen peroxide and plain Neosporin, triple antibiotic, etc. may help with that.  Check out post #5 in the first link, post #4 in the second link, and here are some more to read:

Bresse farms online has a product they call coccidiosis treatment that works great for that, you need to clean ear out and just use that product for about a week in the water it should clear right up, hope that helps

:barnieHello,  I have a buff orpington that after she eats, she shakes her head, scratches her ears and opens her mouth like trying to pop her ears.  I have read the info about cleaning her ears, then insert peroxide and then Neosporin.  I have done this twice now and she continues to act the same way.  Any suggestions?
