Hi all! So on top of having a road island with a respiratory issue, one of my buff laced polish hens has something going on with her eye. I’m not sure if it’s due to a crest feather getting stuck in there, or if it’s because of something else. I put her crest up in a pony tail this afternoon, and I noticed her right eye has some yellow colored hard crust on it. Half of her eye is sealed shut because of it. Hey I just wanted you know Is this normal for polish chickens with large crests? Any advice on how to get the hard stuff removed? The first two pictures I’m sending are of the infected eye, the last image is of her “normal” eye which usually only half opens due to the weight of her crest.
