    I have been doing the chickens in batches this weekend and today is the last day. I noticed two that had foamy eyes but otherwise appeared healthy and normal.

    I looked around and it sounds like a respiratory infection.

    Im not sure why it would be a problem but i just want to make sure.

    thanks

    Probably best to process before it spreads to all others, if it is respiratory.
