    Besides her eye being watery and her opening her mouth (but not panting) she doesn't display any other symptoms... any ideas what it could be?

    Most of the time it is an oncoming respiratory illness.

    Okay, poor little thing. I'm not familiar with chicken pharmacies- so what should I do for this? Meds? Saline? Separation/Quarantine?

    Quote:All of those. Tylan 50 is often helpful, it is a cattle inject able medication. A very small amount under the skin, an insulin needle would work best, a few drops in mouth if you can't inject.
