    1 of my RIR has a bulge under her eye. Is this something I should be concerned about? [​IMG]

    Looks like it needs some antibiotic eye ointment to me. I wonder if there is anything over the counter you can get?

    She may have debris in her eye and/or scratched her eye. Flush it with saline solution, then put terramycin eye ointment in her eye for a few days.

    Thank you. I will try the ointment. Should I do try and push on that lump? Could it be filled with puss? Or do I leave it alone and just clean it and use ointment?

    Where do I find terramycin for chickens?
