True5 that is something respiratory. Chickens have no room in their sinuses so respiratory problems manifest in the eyes. Could just be a cold or it could be something more serious. Treat with Tetroxy HCA, Gallimycin, or Denagard in the water or with a shot of Tylan in the breast muscle. Since you've exposed your whole flock I would suggest cutting to the chase and treating the whole flock NOW.
Pictures from this weekend, some of these are ones I added to my website:
OMGI NEED one of these!!! I love my BOrp Big Mama, but this girl is GORGEOUS!
Also good advice LOL!
Todd is in tahlequah and on byc, custom coops, and i highly recommend his coops! This one is so solid and well put together, i would think the only thing that might harm it would be a bear shoving it over, it is that solid!He is also on facebook, if you go there- https://www.facebook.com/pages/Four...!/pages/Four-Seasons-Handyman/244064488971450
here is the roo after his foot soak, fed him and gave him acv water-
I buy mine at the local feed store. Lees Feed on 11th and 193rd.
I can't really help much on the dimensions of the coop, there are threads on here dedicated to coop building!I need some advice about the coop I am building: I live in a chicken unfriendly neighborhood, so I have to have something either not seen from the front of the house, or easily disguised. (I actually thought about putting a picture of a rabbit on the side to make people think it was a rabbit hutch. :0) ) I want a tractor so they can eat the bugs/grass and not leave a bare spot in the yard. My dh, I am just realizing, does not share my enthusiasm for the upcoming flock, so I only have about 1/4-1/3 of an acre that is secluded behind my house and no fence, and need something low profile (or at least something that looks pretty nice).
If I build a tractor, expecting to move it at least once a day, possibly twice, do I still need the 8-10 sq feet per bird in the run (6 sq feet per bantam)?
If I make a 4' tall run and put a roost halfway up the run in a couple of spots does that give me any additional "credit" for room?
Do I have to have a tall run (4'), or would a 2' high run be OK?
Is there any benefit to having a detachable run?
