I did a thread search about chickens eyes being stuck together. I found a ton of information thanks to all of your post. However, nothing seemed to match my problem. I have a total of six chickens (3 leghorns and 3 BO). They are about 34 weeks old, live in a 10x14 coop, using deep litter method with shavings. They have a florescent light on during day for a little added heat and to add daylight hours (approx. 12 hours a day). They get to go out in their run during the day if they want, get to free range on the weekends. I feed them 20% layer pellets (Blue Seed brand), they get BOSS, some scratch and variety of treats, and have access to oyster shells and grit. Here is what I have noticed: We have had several nights of very cold weather here in Maine (though I am not sure if this is causing it). One of my BO's is having a problem with her left eye. In the morning when I go out and wake them up (not light out yet before I go to work) her eye seems to be stuck shut. It takes her a few minutes to open it. I have watched her closely for about a week now and that eye seems to be a little red around the edges...not really weaping but some moisture is crusted around it. I have taken her in the house and cleaned it with a warm washcloth. She seems fine once she is up and going for the day. No other symptoms..no coughing, sneezing, no running nose or discharge. Breathing seems normal (can't "hear" it) No foul smell, poops look normal and she is eating and drinking fine and seems like a hapyy camper. Anyone have any clue what this could be? Should I put some anitbiotic cream on it just for good measure? Could she be getting too cold at night? Thank you!
