I was away for a week out of town and had someone watching all our animals so I’m not sure exactly when this popped up. We came home Friday and that’s when I immediately noticed when I went up to check on my girls. Very swollen face. And huge swollen neck. Skin is purplish where swollen. She is eating and drinking like normal, poop is normal, she seems a little uncomfortable but not lethargic. No bad smells. No obvious injuries or punctures. I have separated her. I have given her some antibiotics since Friday afternoon (3 days now). She usually lays every day but no eggs from her since we’ve been back home. The swelling in her face and purply/redness has gone done a little bit but not much. First pictures are from Friday. Last couple are from today. You can see the swollen lump right in the middle of her neck. Eye was swollen all the way shut and is now starting to open up. Any ideas? I’m thinking I might need to visit a vet. But thought I’d try a post here, first time posting!
