    I have a OEGB she is a little under 7 months. I bought her an noticed a very small bump on eye lid. It has grown to one on top and one on bottom. Though, hummm looks like what my other chicken had fowl pox. They were never together and the other chicken had healed before we got her. In totally 2 didfferent pens. I have had her 3 weeks.

    They look like 2 crusty warts, kinda like the fowl pox bumps they get. I noticed her eye has white discharge which screams infection.

    What can i give her? I flushed it with salt water but nothing came out or even clean. I can get to TSC today but if it's bad will call vet cause of eye area. Just kinda don't have the money!

    I don't want her to loose the eye! Also want her to be well. She is eating OK. Acts normal except for her eye is 1/2 shut!

    HELP!
