    Hi all, I got online tonight to search google because when my hubby & I returned home from dinner I discovered my my red, Tallulah, had an injured eye, and I needed some advice as to how to help her. Its late now, but I will out looking for a few things in the morning. Her eye is swollen and shut, and there are some minor little cuts on her comb, so it could be the dominance romp with my AHole Roo and another hen pecking at her. This is the first injury like this for me in 5 years. I am grateful for this site, because I still have lots to learn. I have some Spurs Big Fix, but I dont think that this would be good for the eye. My poor girl is in shock..... Is there a special kind of gel ointment I should look for and where can I find this type of thing?

    Welcome to BYC! It's great to have you.

    I'd recommend applying some Vetricyn to the area. Vetricyn is ideal for use near and in the eye. Neosporin would work as well. It will likely heal well.

    You don't mean she is really in shock do you? Her injuries don't seem serious enough to bring that on. Meanwhile dump the rooster and get a good one. Tons of good ones looking for good homes - never a good reason to keep a bad roo.
