    Hi all. I have a chicken who has a terrible swollen eye, it started on one side and seems like its moving to the other. Looked around on this forum and it seems like it might be clogged sinus? Looked in her mouth and it looks like some yellow crusty on the roof of her mouth. We chased down one of the healthy chickens and looked in its mouth, and it definately seemed different. My question (for now) is: how do I clean that crusty off?
    Thanks
    Annette
