My easter egger, Harriet, is about 6 months old and yesterday i saw her and her eye was fine and then a few hours later i came back and her eye had been watering and she kept closing it. I looked closely and she didnt have any signs of being pecked in the eye, there was no blood or anything. But i know shes pretty low in the pecking order and there's nothing around for her to hurt herself on. I did deworm with valbazen and use de dust two days ago, but her other eye is fine and the other chickens are fine also. She was fine all day till 3 pm yesterday, so i doubt it was any of the things i did. This morning her eye is stuck shut, since she was sleeping all night. What do i do? Use people eye drops? My dog got prescribed some eye drops, theyre steriod eye drops. I might still have those areound. Is that okay? What should i use to help her?

I was going to post a pic after you asked but it looks better after i rinsed it with warm water and used eye drops. I think she got pecked in the eye! Shes low on the pecking order i think, so that makes sense. It looks like theres a little scab under her eye, where her bottom "lashes" would be. So i can use neosporin?

Yes, neosoporin oitment without pain relief. We have used it on kittens ( even week old ones) and hens as well and it clears up infections. Even genric triple antibiotic from walmart ect is good. :) just make sure its NOT cream or pain relief kind.
