    This afternoon while we were cutting up some pomegranates for our girl's I notice my faverolle's eye was half closed and a little crusty looking.

    Picked her up to get a better look and it looks like under her eye is swollen and somewhat purplish in coloring. She seems fine other then the swollen half closed eye.

    If this is an infection I need to know what to do for her. Any help would be greatly appreciate! Thanks.

    It is hard to get good pictures of it since she has such puffy cheeks [​IMG]

    Looks like an infection of some sort? I recently saw this on another thread. they said a broad spectrum antibiotic would clear it up.

    The eye itself does not looked damaged, so I am not sure if it was pecked? But who knows... [​IMG]

    Where would one find a broad spectrum antibiotic and do they have a specific name? Thanks for the help so far.

    Your local feedstore would be the best place because you could get it soon.
    websites like rendall burkly (exuse sp) will ship it too. Look up antibiotics on there site you should see wich one suites you in the description.

    If she starts sneezing in a few days, have her checked for MG.
