I have been treating 2 chicks that were bit pretty bad by fire ants. The Wyandotte chick received multiple bites on the right side of her face and under her beak. She swelled up real bad and the bites look pretty knarly. The Silkie chick was bit at her right eyelid which swelled up bad. Both are still thriving despite the bad bites and growing. Been treating with an eye antiboitic made for chickens that I bought from McMurry. Ter...something. I have to relook at the package when I get home. Been treating for about 6 days. The Wyandotte chick has reduced swelling and is showing improvement. The swelling has caused her beak to scissor just a slight bit. The Silkie's eye is completely shut very little improvement. Has anyone else habe experience treating these kind of ant bites? Should I stop the antibiotic on day 7 or continue till the bites completely go away? I am concerned over the Silkie's eye. The chicks are now 3 weeks old. I have lost chicks already from bad bites, the difference is these 2 are fighters and I am wanting them to pull through. Ants have been horrible this year due to the draught we are experiencing.
