    Have you checked to be sure it isn't a repiratory infection?

    If it is an eye infection you could use polysporin eye drops.

    I picked up some Terramycin eye ointment at Tractor Supply for my Mille Fleur chicks eye. Hers looked terrible and it cleaned it right up fast. It was in a small yellow box locked in a case for about $10.

    I've noticed one of my girls has this too. She also has a runny nose. Does this sound like an infection?

    Try Tetracycline mixed with Sulfa they work well together.

    Hi I looked under your link but could not find anything on this. I have the same problem with two of my girls. What can I do about it? What can I give them to correct it?
