I had a guinea with this same thing. Blind in one eye and barely leaving the other eye open. Grass of alfalfa got in its eye. As you say "eating with difficulty". There was no cure. I understand chickens are different than guineas. Right? Not swollen like a balloon. Mine were a bit different. Cull it. Maybe. Or buy eye medicine. I'm sorry for your loss. Quote Okay can you post pic
pullet?
Can you smell ammonia in their coop? If you can, you need to clean it out completely and put in fresh bedding and clean it out frequently enough that you never smell ammonia. You may also have a severe lack of ventilation and an overpopulation problem. The dog pic. Dobie lover. Well I cleaned and it didn't help the bird.
