    My Easter Egger, Penny, has got white foamy bubbles in the front of each of her eyes [​IMG] I don't know what it is and never seen it before on any of my other birds [​IMG] Her beard is sorta wet...do you think she just somehow found some dirty foam from the rain water and got it in her eyes?
    [​IMG] I don't know what it is or what to do, Please help me out!


    thank you...

    Justin

    It sounds like some kind of respertory illness do you see your chicken sneeze alot and then it gets bubbles around the eyes and

    does

    her face smell bad also is there any swelling ? its either coryza or myco but the treatment is the same

    you are gonna need to get either tylan in injectable or a water soluble tylan

    the dosage will depend on the severity of the illness and size of the chicken

    good luck

    and separate it from your flock

    be very informed and careful when attempting to use the needle either in the breast muscle opposite the crop or on the back of the

    neck
