    Here's how it goes.

    I wrap my baby in a towel. I call her my 'Dottie Burrito'!

    Then attempt to get the incredibly flexible neck (with head attached) to remain still while you POKE your chicken in the eye in a desperate attempt to get the stuff into the right place. (And NOT onto her wattles, cheeks and comb, which you did in the three previous tries) [​IMG]

    If any ointment actually gets into the eye by the time the 15.00 tube is empty (I'm being sarcastic), you win a prize--it'll all be in your lap [​IMG]

    I guess there is no really sure-fire way to apply T E ointment........

    Can you drape the towel over the whole chicken - head included, just leaving the face exposed?
