    Oh, boy! my little 2 weeker looks like she is having trouble. she's supposed to be a BO splash. I got 5 and only 2 survived, so today I went to the feed store to buy the 2 chicks some warm friends. sometime between then and now, she has puss in front of her eye. the others don't seem to be picking at all. I don't have chicken meds at home, would neosporin help? here's a pic. thanks so much for your help [​IMG]

    I'm not sure if it will or not, i had one i had to cull, and my cousins started doing that and they give them antibiotics.

    forgot to ask if you think I should seperate also? I got her friends b/c i thought with the shipping stress, plus loosing most of them afterwards, it would help her to thrive. If I seperate, I'm afraid she'll die..

    One of my hens had this problem. I was told to use some meds you buy at the feed store, but it never helped any. I didn't seprate her from the other chicken (i only had two at the time) thinking it was just a cold, and she would be ok, but she only has one eye now because it would never heal up correctly. I hope you find something to fix it because she has problems seeing.
