    I've got a little bantam with completely closed eyes.
    I've got her in a pet carrier far away from the other chickens.
    The poor thing can't see at all and was walking into everything and getting trampled by the other birds.
    She's breathing fine and drinking if I hold her where the water is (she can't find it on her own)

    Suggestions? How do I treat?

    I would try Neosporin without pain relief. Try warm water with a cotton ball, then the ointment.
    If someone thinks it's more serious, ie coryza or something, hopefully they will post. But that's what I would do right now.

    I just noticed that she's sneezing occasionally.

    Okay so it could be a respiratory infection. Do a search on here byc for Coryza . I'm not home or I would do it. Separate her as if that is what it is, it is infectious.
    Hopefully someone with more knowledge will help.

    I would still try the plain neosporin

    Mycoplasma maybe?
    I've got her far away from any of the other birds.
