    You are going to have to clean out the ear to get the gunk out. Hydrogen peroxide and plain Neosporin, triple antibiotic, etc. may help with that. Check out post #5 in the first link, post #4 in the second link, and here are some more to read:

    Bresse farms online has a product they call coccidiosis treatment that works great for that, you need to clean ear out and just use that product for about a week in the water it should clear right up, hope that helps

    [​IMG]Hello, I have a buff orpington that after she eats, she shakes her head, scratches her ears and opens her mouth like trying to pop her ears. I have read the info about cleaning her ears, then insert peroxide and then Neosporin. I have done this twice now and she continues to act the same way. Any suggestions?
