I believe we might have mycoplasma. I had a chicken with a swollen bubbly eye. I isolated and treated with Tylan. It seemed to be getting better. But then two days ago, two more chickens ended up with a swollen eye. Yesterday I was up to four. Just one eye each. Only the first bird (pictured) had respiratory sounding issues that I could hear. I have been doing research. Some say to use LA 200, and that Tylan isn’t effective. Others say Tylan is more effective. Which is true? I already ordered Denagard

Sounds like you have illness spreading through the flock.
Clean the eyes with saline and apply an eye ointment a couple of times a day.

Tylan is commonly used to treat Symptoms of MG. Do you have powder or injectable (Tylan50/200)? If powdered, then make sure the birds are drinking the water. If you have a bird not drinking, then they aren't getting the medication and you need to syringe the mixed water into them frequently.

Injectable Tylan is given orally 3 times a day, so make sure you are giving the correct dose for the correct amount of time. If you need Tylan dosing, let us know.

Denagard is use to treat MG in poultry.

LA200 could also be used to treat symptoms of respiratory illness like MG.

Consistency in giving medications and giving the correct doses, keeping the eyes cleaned and water stations cleaned will help with Symptoms.

Do keep in mind that respiratory illnesses like MG do spread through a flock. Birds that get better and those that are exposed even if they never exhibit symptoms are carriers of the disease.

Dosing for Tylan and LA200 would be helpful. What about injecting? I have been cleaning eyes with saline. What kind of ointment should I be using?
Thank you.

IF you will tell what Tylan you have that would be good.
Powdered, follow the directions on the label.

Injectable is 10-40mg/kg given orally 3 times a day for 5 days in a row.

LA200 is long acting injectable used for cattle every 3 days. Dosing is iffy for chickens, but you may find the answer here:

Ointment for eyes - Terramycin, you can find it at TSC or online.
