Hello, I'm new to the site and relitively new to raising chickens. (Started January of this year) Last weekend we noticed one of chickens had an eye that was bubbling. After some research we decided it was either an illness or some sort of infection. I started her on an antibiotic and just kept her isolated. After several days her eye swelled shut and that's when o decided to examine her further. That's when we found a large white mass surrounding her eye. I've attached a picture. Some of the mass came off by itself. Some came off when we used a sterile q tip on it. To me it seems to be a hardened infection. However, we are having a difficult time removing it all. It seems to be stuck. Has anyone ever encountered a problem like this?! Any suggestions/solutions?! Could it be a tumor? she's eating fine, walking/flying fine, drinking fine. She's one of our favorites. And my sons chicken. I'd hate to cull her. But I also don't want her to suffer. Any advice is appreciated!!
