    My hens face is really swollen (no smell as of yet) and her eye are gunky. It's like liquid in a bunch of little bubbles form. I think its coryza, but maybe mg. What do yall think?[​IMG]

    Sounds like MG. Bloodwork can confirm it if it's MG.

    Why do you think it's mg instead of infectious coryza? I've never delt with this so am curious.
