    I noticed today that my cochin roo, Spencer Tracy's eye was shut and he had some dried blood on his comb. I examined his eye, read about possible reasons on BYC but I don't think it's contagious, after I looked a little more carefully, underneath the eye looks bruised. thank goodness it's not his "good" eye! Anyway, I went to CVS, got saline solution eye wash and Neosporin (no pain reliever in it) and applied both. I have him in a crate in the house. Does anyone think it's safe to put him back in the coop (with 12 others, 11 hens, one other roo but they grew up together and the other roo, Sidney, usually protects Spencer. I don't think Sidney attacked Spencer, more than likely it was one of those nasty RIR's). Or should I keep him quiet and in the house in the crate for tonight? He seems to feel all right, he's drinking water and preening.

    first just because roosters grow up together
    they become enimies when breeding season which we are in comes around

    with that said which ever bird attacked him
    should have blood on them

    but you need to leave him with the others as when he is put back in then they will really fight him for pecking order

    do this for the whole flock

    THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOUR BIRDS NOW
    ( GLH- advises using the 1000 mg capsules cut end off and squeeze into wet mash
    and putting in a wet mash for them to eat

    ( use one capsule Vit E per bird treating and do this twice a day for a week
    Vitamin E helps fix E. coli overpopulations. You know what else helps fight
    E. coli?
    THIS IS FOR YOUR CHICKENS NOW

    the corid amproylium will work for coccidiosis


    THIS IS FOR YOUR CHICKENS NOW
    but now you have a difficient gut problem with the E.coli
    and it needs to have the Vitamin E put in the wet mash probiotic to help the E.coli gut problem
    do this

    now the
    natural probiotic recipe is is:
    1/2 qt of dry crumbles
    3/4 QT of milk, sweet, sour, or buttermilk or a mixture of all or some
    1/4 cup of non flavored yoguart ( no artificial sweetmer)
    mix good
    YOU CAN ADD LAST ON TOP OF WET MASH
    1/4 CUP OF APPLE SAUCE AS THEY WILL EAT THAT GOOD

    NOW THE IMPORTANT INGRIEDIENT FOR EACH CHICKEN FED
    and add 1- 1000 mg of Vit E by cutting the end off the vit E capsule for each chicken fed this wet mash
    putting it in the wet mash

    this for each chicken your treating
    so for each chick use 2 tbsp of mixture and 1-1000 mg of Vit E

    twice a day for them till the manure is solid

    and feed each chicken
    2 tbsp full of the wet mash probiotic and what they will clean up in 20-30 minutes
    then clean wet feeders and restock dry crumbles

    do this twice a day for a week
    till the chickens is healed
    then quit the Vit E make just the wet mash probiotic
    then once a week for life

    All the while after mdicating the birds use ACV IN THE WATER
    do not use ACV with medication


    2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar per gallon of the chicken water so their gut flora wil be regulated they should have this at least 3-5 days a week
    then three days aweek after they are over coccidiosis


    the vit's are neccessary to clean up the damaged gut problem
    email me any questions so you are not confused


    any questions email me

    nobody had any blood on them and I really think his eye is bruised although now it appears to be stuck closed. Should I leave it as is? put more saline solution on it? I don't understand what vitamin E has to do with this and I don't know what corid amproylium is and I really don't think that coccidiosis is an issue with an eye injury. [​IMG]
