    One of my Silkies, Gwen, has a goopy eye that seems to have been (maybe) pecked or poked. It's half shut and is watering a lot.
    Any suggestions? She's eating, drinking and otherwise acting normal. Is there an eye drop I can give her? Should I bring her inside?

    You can try flushing it with lukewarm saline solution. It is likely a piece of something in here eye, like a dust particle ir feather part or something.
    If that is not the cause, and after you flush the eye, you can get some terramycin eye ointment to smear on the eye.
