My Black Rock Came Down A While Ago With A Swollen Eye, Was A Bit Bubbly But Mostly Swollen, Seperated Her From Her Sister And Put Her In A Seperate Run, She's Been Treated On For Five Days Off For 5 With Denagard 3 Or 4 Times Now But It Just Seems To Get Worse, She Tends Not To Drink A Lot When's She's On It But Often When We Take Her Off. Would Putting It In Her Food And Treats Help Or Does She Need Stronger Meds?

Welcome to BYC.

It could be a respiratory disease like Mycoplasma Gallisepticum (MG).

You can try Tylan 50 injectable, given orally, or seek a vet's help. Tylan 50 dosage is 1 cc or ml per 5 pounds of weight. Give it orally or as an injection into the breast muscle 1/4 inch deep.

Keep in mind that antibiotics may help with relief/supportive care and can help with secondary infections, there is no "cure" and recovered birds still remain carriers for life.
