my 4 month old Cuckoo maran had injured eye. I treated it with antibiotics and it seemed to be getting better, however, she was still sctratching it. I went out today and her eye was extremely swollen and upon further examination, it appears that she has actually slit her lower eyelid from about the middle of it straight down about an 1/8 of a centimeter. Any other chicken would be a cull because I know her eye won't ever be normal, but this is my one pet chicken that I happen to be attached to. Has anyone ever tried to wrap a chicken's eye or put a patch on it? I was thinking a tiny patch might work better. I know they make that Shut-eye stuff for cows that you can glue a piece of fabric over their eye with. Any ideas?
