    I saw a hen had a bubbly eye while she was laying yesterday, so last night i seperated her from the flock and have terramyicin in her water, i am not seeing any other symptoms than puffy/bubble eye....anything else I should look for or do for her and how long should i keep her seperated?

    thank you

    A respiratory infection is contagious for life. You should either close your flock or cull. [​IMG]
