My year old polis chicken have bad eye problem! Help! Whole eye is swollen and very big. The inner eye lid is swollen too and I can't see the real eye anymore. This problem haven't be more than 6 days. I check all my polish eyes every week. Six days ago I need to wash here hair cause she ate porridge and she was very dirty! I know bad move that porridge.... Anyway it hasn't been like that a long time.
First i washed her hair again case it was full of that eye stuff that is coming out of it. Then I flush her eye with sailing(saltwater from pharmacy). I remowed that yellow/white cheesy like stuff from her eye. It was lot of it! Then I put a antibiotic eye ointment in it. Fucithalmic vet1% is one I used. I gave to her straight to her mouth an antibiotic. It is called Oriprim and is antibiotic, sulfa I think. She had also Metacan painkiller. Now I am doing this eye cleaning routine four times a day. One time a day she is getting antibiotics and painkillers. I think I need to go on with this routine week or two. I didn't put her isolation. She is in very small flock, and I tough that she would be stressed if I take her away. In same flock there is one cockerel and hen wicht have flu. Sneezing time to time. Nothing else. They get Oriprim antibiotics too. Whole flock haves vitamins in water. Everybody else are healthy! This eye problem chicks doesn't have anything else. She doesn't sneeze like those others. She doesn't look like sick. She eats and drinks normally and she is doing chicks things like others.
What do you think? Do I have any hope with her! I love this chickens a lot and i don't want to lose her... Feelin sad What is this? I don't think this I sinus problem. There is nothing coming out of her nose. Throat is looking clean. Please help me!
