    You will have to call one near you as different areas charge differently. Normally $50 for an office visit... Then whatever cost for treatment

    The answer depends on to many variables. The office visit can range anywhere from $40 to $50 bucks, this does not include medication to treat whatever the problem is. Your vet may be able to take a look and make a diagnosis, more often then not with chickens some testing needs to be done to determine exactly WHAT to treat and with what medication. They can be complicated critters!

    can you post a picture of her eye? Someone may be able to help you so you don't have to incur the vet bill. They can be very expensive and in most cases you can take care of the issue yourself with some guidance from the awesome people here!
