    Hello! I am in need of some advice. I have an eleven week old barred rock with an eye infection and what seems to be an eye injury. I have read through tons of posts on this forum and have treated her eyes with Terramycin ointment. I have also given her Tylan injections. Anyway, she has what looks like a scab/swollen bulge on her eye and I am unsure if I should let it be or if I should try to pick it off or pop it. I felt it and the outside is tough like a scab but not totally hard, if that makes sense. The swelling went down significantly since treating her and she is able to open her eyes where 2 days before she couldn't open them from the swelling. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you for your time in reading! [​IMG]
