My 15 week old pullet has has a swollen eye underneath her third eyelid. Thinking it was an eye infection I have been using terramycin however tonight when I was doing her treatment, I saw worms. I had a feeling but haven't seen them until tonight. What should I do to help her? Do I treat my other pullets too? Thank you 😊

Buy a bottle of Valbazen liquid cattle/sheep wormer. Mix equal parts of water and Valbazen and flush the eyes with it. Then give the pullet 1/2ml undiluted Valbazen orally to her using a syringe without a needle. Then repeat dosing in 10 -14 days.
Here's where you can buy the Valbazen:

It would be best to worm all your chickens with the Valbazen as described above.

Thanks for the info. I have never dewormed my chickens before is it safe to use Valbazen for their first time?
Also when you say mix equal part. Is there a recommended amount needed. Thanks again for you advice. I bought the meds just waiting for it in the mail now. Going to try Vetrx until it gets here.

Yes, it's safe to use for the first time. It's very safe overall. When flushing, use an amount that allows you to flush well, doesn't have to be an exact amount. For the oral dose, use what @dawg53 recommended above. If it is not eyeworm it will not do any harm.

So, we are still waiting for the Valbazen to arrive. We started the vetrx which is pretty tricky to do but we got some pus to come out but no other changes. Here is a picture of her eyes. She seems healthy otherwise. Eating Drinking and Grazing. I just feel so bad for her.
