    one of my chickens (Shake N Bake) has an eye thats shut and looks like its got a bit of discharge coming from it. The chicken appears healthy other than that. I read other posts which recommended Terramycin so I applied that to the chicken this morning and will see what happens. Did I do the right thing, could this be something more serious? should I keep the chicken seperated from others?

    I don't think it would hurt to keep him separate to keep others from pecking at it. Good luck.
