    hi everyone, like to start by saying im new to computer, face book, all those files! but i have a deep love for all animals great and small.i have been playing with and taking care of chickens since i was a child. i finally moved back to the country after 25 yrs. and was soo excited to start my flock. i have allmost every chicken i wanted and they are all beautiful. i went to my first swap in milton ky. this labor day and bought a sizzle chick, she is fine but the rest of my flock is getting sick. 3 have bubbles in their eyes and are very droopy. i started them on antibiotic eye meds and the yellow powder antibiotic. its not helping. can any one please advise?[​IMG]
