    At first I thought my little rooster got pecked in the eye, as he is lowest in pecking order...then the eye began to swell and fill with fluid. The other eye then began to fill with fluid. The nostril has decayed and the beak has curled so he can't shut his mouth. I have him on antibiotics. Any idea as to what it is...I have quarantined him from the rest of the flock.

    Seems like a disease, virus, bacteria of some form...very rapid

    I don't know what state you are in, but in most states the dept of agriculture will come out and test any sick birds for you. I would recommend this. It could be coryza or something worse
