    My boys got into a scuffle and one now has a swollen eye along with some small flesh wounds on his comb. I've brought him inside and he's resting comfortably in a crate. I'm trying to keep it relatively dark so he'll rest that eye. Is there something I should do for the eye injury? Or just wait and see what happens?
     
  2. Saline eye wash and antibiotic for the eye, like you get for your dog or cat for the eye treatment. You can find it at the feed store, a bit expensive but needed.

    Was it Bob who is hurt? I agree with the eye wash.

    No, Bob's fine. It's Little Jack. I'm happy to report the swelling doesn't seem to be getting any worse. I'll see about getting the eye wash.
