    Have you added any new birds lately that could have exposed him to mycoplasma (MG or CRD?) A peck around the eye could also cause bubbles around the eye, but MG is the most common thing in absence of a peck wound. Is there any nasal drainage, sneezing, or noisy breathing? MG is best treated with Tylan (tylosin) or other antibiotics from a vet in the UK. In the US, we can buy those at most farm stores. This link to read contains information about MG and other common diseases:
