I was doing chores last night and found my one rooster with a pretty beat up eye on his right side. I immediately removed him to a box and a heat lamp in the shed. This is what he looks like this morning: This is the other side of his head: He is otherwise very active now that he has been moved. He was a little wet and "down" when I found him like that yesterday. Here are some details that may help: -He was fine at 4:30 pm when I checked on him. At 9:00 PM I found him hurt/sick -He is 1 roo in with 8 hens in a 24" x 36" converted rabbit hutch (our first quail, didn't intend on breeding them, but of course that changes....) -He is an active mater; most eggs have appeared to be fertilized -I have lights on them to get them 14 hours of light to keep laying, and have draped the pen with plastic since the weather got cool, but still open bottom and plenty of ventilation. -They have a dust bath and straw "nesting box" (small cat litter box) -The eye appears completely shut and possibly lost -No pus or crust other than what appears to be dried over/healed over flesh -Plenty of water available -Feed is a mix of TSC's mixed flock feed (20% pro,) Turkey grower (24% pro), oyster shell and a small amount of finely ground wheat Does this appear to just be an injury situation? Should I just use the ointment suggested in other threads? At what point can he be reintroduced to the hens, or should he remain isolated/culled? Is a 1:8 ratio so low that it can encourage the hens to turn on the roo? (A stretch, I know, but maybe someone has other experiences.) Are the extended days, or the draped pen, or both causing them to be aggressive, meaning, should I turn the lights off for the winter? This is Central California, and our COLDEST nights will see high 20s, and we aren't there yet. Any other insight? Thanks!
