    My rooster's eye has something on it. He can move it down just a little but can't see out of it. Please let me know if you know what it is or what I should do for him. I'm not sure if it is an injury or disease. Thank you for any information. Kathy
    This thing is in front of his eye, I can see his eye behind it. I think it may be something wrong with one of his lids. Have any of you ever seen this?

    The easiest way I know, if you don't use a hosting site...is to upload it to your profile on BYC and right click, it should say, "copy image location" From there, just paste that into your post, highlight it and hit the "Img" button.
    I hope he's okay!

    Try flushing with saline solution, then apply terramycin eye ointment according to the directions on the label.

    Thanks you guys! I got the picture to post. Could it be something wrong with his lid? It will move down a little and it seems kinda thick. It looks kinda yellow in the picture but it is white. Thank you for any help. Kathy
    P.S. He is acting fine. He's eating, drinking, mating, etc. He acts no different. Seems fine other than the eye.

    I hope someone around here knows.
    <3 Best of luck. Glad he's doing well other than the eye issue.

    Quote:Thanks Geebs, I looked up eyeworm and I don't think that's it. His eye doesn't seem grey. It's more like the white thing is in front of his eye.
