    I had written about a lethargic chicken, and suspected worms or other sorts of things that deplete the chicken. I put a little bit of sulfa around her isolated pen and a tiny bit on her "belly" but her eyes and beak are matted up, so I used a soft, sterile cloth and some antibiotic ointment and cleaned her up well and put the ointment in her eyes. She had a nasty exudate from one eye.
