    Saturday evening, I saw that one of my hen had a closed eye and inside. Started her on triple antibiotics. The next morning the eye was all white and bulging out...Bought some eye wash ( sterile water) and terramycin...What do you think? I wonder if she didn't puncture her eye...In this case what am I supposed to do?

    I took a short video as she was moving too much to take a picture...Here is the link.
    Thank you for your help

    It's hard to see in the video

    Did you flush the eye to see if there is anything in it?
    Have you applied ointment?
    Is the white pus or her eyeball?

    To be honest I just don't know.
    Can you take her to a vet to have them look at it?
    Is there any drainage from the eye?

    Wish I could have had better answers[​IMG]

    If you are seeing some improvement, then hopefully with your TLC she will get back to her old self.
