    I have a chicken and a duck that seem to have eye issues not sure if it's conjunctivitis but was told I could use Terramycin ointment in their eyes to sooth and help cure the problem if thatÂ’s what it is. Does anyone have a thought on this one or another treatment suggestions? Thanks

    Terramycin opthalmic ointment is great stuff. If your birds have a small eye irritation going on then this is what you'd want to use. It's no good for bigger problems (bacterial infections not susceptible to terramycin), but for the small stuff it works well.

    Good luck. I hope they clear up quickly.

    I have used Neosporin in the past and it works well. Like the last post...for the small stuff it works great.
