    One of my Buff Orpingtons has some eye issues. One eye looks like it is injured. She keeps it closed or squints, and has been sitting on her roost most of the day with her head tucked under her wing. The other eye has little bubbles in the corner, and it looked like there were bubbles in her mouth. She doesn't have any funny breath sounds and isn't sneezing. Here are some pictures

    This is her right eye. There are some little bubbles in the corner.

    This is how she has been a lot of the day

    This is the left eye. Maybe it was pecked? I have a SLW that pecks at the other girls sometimes.

    Separate and start her on antibiotics? Or just treat the whole flock? Can we still eat the eggs while they are on antibiotics?

    the left eye is dry, no bubbles, just swollen. Add watery yellow poop to that. But when I checked her this afternoon after putting her in quarantine her eye was free of bubbles.
