    My bantam cochin, Clover, is having some eye troubles. She was perfectly fine yesterday, is there anyway a eye infection could come on so fast? Did one of the others do this? Should I try to get the eye open? It appears to be stuck closed with blood or maybe puss.. She's in the bathroom with electrolyte water and feed. What else can I do for her? Does she need an antibiotic? HELP!!!!!

    Does this look like infectious coryza?
