    I went out this evening to check on the chickens and saw that my EE rooster had his eye closed and it looked flat. i had my other rooster loose his eye and it looks exactly the same. i dint know what to do with my last rooster, so i just let it get better. but is there anything i could do for my EE?

    This is the second rooster that has had an eye plucked out? Any idea how this happened?
    Does he have any other wounds/cuts on his body?

    The only thing I know to do would be flush the eye with saline or sterile water to help cleanse it and apply some Vetericyn eye gel or Terramycin eye ointment to the eye.

    Watch for any signs of infection - swelling/redness, oozing pus and odors.

    Keep us posted.

    yes, he is. the first rooter is free range and they might have been fighting through the fence. i have him and my turkey in a pen by them selves because i have a bantam rooster that i had to put with hes hens, but the turkey has lived with him for a long time. i turned the hens out with them and the turkey got kind of mad, but settled down. he does not have any other wounds. i will flush his eye with water tomorrow. thanks!
