I started with 6 squeakers, but lost two on their first release, leaving me with only four, so I wanted to get a few more to start my loft. I picked up the four new squeakers today (one silver bar, one red bar, one blue bar and one blue check) from a guy who is a pretty serious racer, he let me take my pick, so I know he wasn't purposely selling me a sick bird (and all the others look great), but when I got home and put them in the loft with my headlamp on I noticed in the light this one (we'll call her #8, because that's the band I put on her) had some eye issue, and then I also noticed she happened to be the bird that didn't put up much of a stink when I banded them (she was somewhat docile, maybe slightly lethargic). She was blinking her eye and keeping it half shut, and in the flashlight beam it looked cloudy. Her other eye is fine, and she is energetic enough to scoot away from me when I try to pick her up, but unlike the others, when I do pick her up she rests comfortably and lets me pet her and soothe her. My mom is a vet (not an avian vet) but it's too late to call her, so I took matters into my own hands because I wanted to get to treating her ASAP. I applied Neomycin and Polymyxin ointment, an all purpose anti-biotic / anti-fungal for the eye that can be used for humans, dogs and cats, so I took the risk and used it on her assuming it was ok, but I did find one bird website that indicated it can be used for birds. I took her out of the loft in case it was contagious, and have her in a small carry kennel in my garage. I gave her a tiny bit of grit and peanuts, and water, and I treated her water with apple cider vinegar at a concentration of about 1%, and cut a tiny piece of garlic and put it in the water as well. I am not unhappy I picked this bird, as she is probably in the best hands she could be in, rather than in the loft in the numbers, not being paid particular attention to. Any suggestions are appreciated!
