Came home to my chickens eye/head swollen yesterday. It's about 8 weeks old and lives with it's fellow sisters. They get along great. She is still very active and eats. Doesn't seem to have respiratory problems and the area doesn't seem abnormally warm. The other chicks are fine. Does anyone have ideas as the the cause and solution?
often times bees sting chickens RIGHT IN THE EYE, because they know if they try to sting them anywhere else (feathers) the chickens wont feel it! that could be the problem, but usually when it is a sting, the area gets swollen.
