our now pullet-aged cuckoo maran has had swollen nictitating membranes, one much worse than the other, for months. we tried long rounds of opthalmic erythromycin and terramycin as well as a homeopathic pink eye medicine. nothing has worked. i'm beginning to think it's eye worm, as some photos i've seen resemble our problem. tried vet rx, and a little glob did come out of the particularly inflamed eye, but it hasn't cured the problem. vet care is out of the question. has anyone tried the off-book cure of 3 drops of straight ivermectin in the eye?
