    I have about 40 baby chickens right now, I noticed that this one had an eye problem, I quarantined it, started topical antibiotics, and it hasn't improved. One is on the upper eyelid the other is on the lower. I've switched to Oral antibiotics, but they aren't helping either. Any help would be appreciated.[​IMG][/IMG]

    G’Day from down under Dudeaffa [​IMG] Welcome!

    Ouch! Poor baby; that does look sore [​IMG]

    I hope that the folks on the ER forum are able to help you and her out and that she makes a full recovery.

    I also hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    Poor baby needs to see a vet. If the antibiotic is wrong for the problem she may get worse instead of better.

    She ended up passing away the evening after I made the post, kind of strange that none of my other birds were affected. Thank you for the advice
