    Im not sure whats wrong with my sweet chickie, shes always running aroud happy and eating well,but yesterday i noticed her left eye is shut and her right eye in open. She just stands up and stays in a sleeping position and doesnt want to do much. I checked her eye and i cant see much. Just looks a little cloudy and dont see any puss, or scratches. What could this be? I feel like i can kinda see a very teeny tiny greysih speck in her eye, but im not too sure. What should i do? Please help![​IMG]

    She could just be sleeping. Sometimes my girls act like "pirates" too. If this behavior continues, then do a closer examination. She might have a bug or piece of dirt in her eye. Post again if she doesn't start acting better soon.

    Most respiratory disease have symptoms that are associated with the eye such as Mycoplasma,Infectious Bronchitis.I would isolate her immediately and get her started on Tylan 50.

    I got her some antibiotic eye cream at the feed store. I now can notice a little white dot in her eye, and her poop is very white and watery

    No, its not conected to the outside of her eye or even touching, it looks like a very small pimple on her eyeball, its not touching anything else, its just on the eyeball. Its on the iris of her eye only.

    I try to open it but she keeps it shut and starts to want to fly away. It makes her nervous when i try to look at her eye when usually shes okay.
