    I noticed yesterday my rooster had swollen eyes. Today he cant see anything and he runs into everything. He had been fighting terribly with another rooster. Any suggestions?

    I hope your rooster didn't sustain permanent damage. A lot of people forgo having roosters- unless needed for fertile eggs - just because they fight or over breed the hens. Flocks are satisfied without them.
