Hi, This little guy is living at the Fall Festival where I take care of the poultry and rabbits. The flock of bantams that live in the barn began getting eye problems about a week and a half ago. 6 out of 20-something. First one got it, then more. I think its the dark, dank barn where they're living. I treated everyone with terimyacin eye ointment, put sulmet in their drinking water and all their adoptive moms have come to get the ones with problems early (there's only one more week left, thank God)! This little sweetheart is a quail antwert Belgian bantam roo and no one has adopted him yet so he's still in the barn and not getting better. I finally broke down and brought him home today to see if I can't help him with round the clock TLC. I haven't been able to treat him as frequently as I want at the festival. Anyway, he is the only one (of the ones that got the eye infection) who literally shrieks when I try to treat it. I try to put a warm, wet compress on it before applying the terramycin ointment. I don't rub, just try to lay it on the swollen shut eye. He HATES it! And he shrieks some more when I put the ointment on his eye. Do you think it hurts like it sounds? The others didn't object so much to the compress or the ointment. Am I treating it properly or should I be doing something else. He's had this about a week now. His poop is perfect LOL and he has been chowing down on the scrambled egg I gave him. Any advice would be appreciated and sorry this is so long.
