    I have 3 chickens that look like their eyes have either infection or bad cold in them. What do I need to do? I have never had this problem. We keep yard and house clean as possible.

    Might be back...
    Maybe eye worms? Most eye problems have to do with respiratory issues. By the way [​IMG]

    Well one died. We gave him antibiotics and kept a close eye on him. But we found him dead the next morning. The others are ok.

    Yikes! Are there any other symptoms? Breathing problems? Weird poops? Pictures are helpful.

    He just gave up. I would even pick him up and just hold him. He was a nice little roo. Sad sure wish I could have done something to help him. I would really like to know what to do if it ever happens again to any of my other chickens. The other 2 hens are ok. They pulled thru.
    I do not know how to post pics.
