    Is it ok to put regular neosporin in a chickens eye? I do believe my hen was pecked in the eye by another hen and she will keep her eye half closed. No signs of respiratory issues. I know teramycin is better to use but I don't have any.

    Any suggestions?

    Ok. Thank you. I'm guessing she has a scratched cornea.
