This is 1 yr old Eyesie (she had an eye pecked out as a chick), she is my absolute favorite of 120 hens! She has had this inflammation on her mouth developing for about a month. I have tried vetrx, just finished 3 days of Copper Sulfate w/ ACV & probiotics. Previously tried nano silver gel, it isn’t worsening rapidly but isn’t going away. At one point I held her beak open, used a qtip & was able to peel off a white thick, layer of ‘matter’ from top & bottom of the inside of the corner of her mouth; it is not beyond that area. The stuff was pretty white and smooth but fairly dense. It bled when I removed it but it peeled off easily & she no longer loves me. The matter was back the next day. She isn’t eating a lot, is pretty light weight, and I never see her drink water but know that she must. I also nursed her and some flock mates through fowl pox last fall as a result of a very rainy season and lots of mosquitoes & wonder if she has a weakened immune system also. At any rate, I am desperate to save her. Any thoughts or suggestions of what I should do? I love this girl so much. The 1st 2 pics are from less than a month ago and then the current ones.
