    I got a little too excited at a recent sale, and purchased birds without identifying the source, I came to find out it was a known breeder that used to be a puppy mill and is shady at best.
    Lesson learned.

    I now have these sweet birds and noticed right off two of them had a sore eye.
    I waited for sneezes, sniffles, goopy eyes, etc and it hasn't happened.
    One has improved drastically over the last week, one has not.

    I'm not sure if it's a sliver or if it's a scar from a bad scratch.
    I tried to rinse it today and it doesn't seem to have dislodged it at all.

    I don't have a vet here that will treat and am wondering what I should do next.
    Thanks [​IMG]
