    This is 'baby girl' - a 1.5 year old bantam that we adore. She is quite broody and I've been letting her sit on a nest with eggs recently. When I checked on her tonight her right eye was closed and the skin around both eyes as well as her comb looked crusty and dry. Any ideas about what this could be and best treatment?

    Here is the before pic:

    And this is after trying to clean her up. I couldn't really tell if what I was getting off was just something that had dried on her skin or if she was peeling. But I put neosporin all around her eyes and on her comb and put her back on the nest.

    Thanks in advance!!!
