    Can I use Naphcon A eye drops on my chicken with a yellow build up in her eye?

    Naphcon A contains a vasoconstrictor that shouldn't be used for an eye infection. It's mostly to relieve eye redness, and those types are drops are not very good to use. Vetericyn eye gel, or the eye wash, or saline and Terramycin eye ointment can be good to use to help treat and to prevent infection.
