    Hi, I was born and raised in Chicago and now live on a farm with 27 Standard breed chickens, 12 Bantam chickens, 4 ducks, 4 goats, and 4 rabbits. I never thought that chickens were something that I was ever going to be interested in but since last year I have fallen in love with these animals. I haven't had any problems with my chickens and of course a lot of trial and error. The error is buying bantams from a swap and not separating for 2 weeks first. What started out with one having swollen eyes, (which i thought was being pecked by the others) has led into 3 with swollen eyes. I guess just looking for suggestions as to what it could be and how to treat. Any information would be valuable. Don't want to loss my bantams or my standards.
