    What are the symptoms(sp) if any? Sneezing? Wheezing? The one with the swollen head/eyes i would give tylan 50 injectable 1/4 cc. for bantams 1/2 cc. for standards, i believe that is the correct dosage. Need more info though.

    Fudgie Hatching Queen - Got Fudge?

    I had one that had the eye swelling thing, actually had a calcium blob in there I put my finger towards the front part of her eye and rolled my finger backwards towards her neck and the thing just popped right out from her tear duct. I used some eye drops the dr had given me when I had a scratch in my eye. Cleared up in 2 days.

    I don't have a 100% clue what causes it but I my gut instinct was the dirty drinking water in one of the waterers(the ducks had access to it and it was the fav place to drink) [​IMG] . I locked out the ducks from the chicks. I bleached all of the feeders and waterers, rinsing them very well. I started making sure it was changed every SINGLE DAY and this problem cleared up. I also put in medicated water for a few days.

    Hope this helps

    The one with the puffy eye has a black spot like the other one. They are eating, drinking and active. Someone said it could be Avian Pox?

    No wheezing or coughing.

    One has some type of growth on the top of beak (see picture)

    Gate - still looking for a definitve answer.
