Do I need to do anything?[​IMG]

    When mine had those symptoms, they were diagnosed with MG. I called the state vet (which I found through our Dept of Agriculture website) and had them test my birds (for free).

    When I searched bubbles in eyes here a few months ago I came up with eye worm.

    Bubbles in eyes is the sign of a respiratory infection. Get Tylan 50 injectable. Give each bird if adults each a 1 cc shot. It's an intramuscular injection, that should be given in the breast. Find the point of the keel bone(breast). Inject the bird half way between the keel and the wing base. Always hold the bird on it's back & keep the syringe pointing upward while injecting.

    What does this injection do?
    Is this infection contagious to the other chickens? Should I separate her? Do you know what has caused it?
    Thanks
