    It's the three runners. I tried to focus on the one. The others look the same. ONLY the runners are affected. It just happened yesterday, but I'm not sure if it's an actual problem or not. It looks 'wet' but it hasn't gone away from the past two days. They are 2 weeks and 4 days old.

    I tried doing other research but couldn't really find anything. Hopefully someone here has some experience, it would be greatly appreciated. They have clean water that they can put there bill in. But I haven't seen them go as far as the eyes (it is possible they can do it, but I haven't witnessed it)

    Looks like they have a small eye infection.
    What I do for eye infections on my birds is
    Raw Honey
    Water
    Sea Salt
    and 4 drops of colloidal silver

    This works REALLY well for eye infections.

    Only put enough water in the container so it isn't wasted.

    Thanks. And it all goes directly in the water? Where would I get colloidal silver? I've read on this site (After I posted) that Vetericyn works well. It's a spray available at TSC. Would you recommend that?

    How much do you use of each?

    I have never used Vetericyn. I try to stay natural
    You can get colloidal silver at your local health food store.
    Yes you just put water then mix in the 4 drops of colloidal silver,
    2 tsp of raw honey,
    And 2 pinches of sea salt.

    Hope this helps
