    First it was just watery, few hours later it got this white film over it so I separated her and brought her inside. Next morning her other eye was the same and she started coughing, I cleaned her eyes with water solution and put some terramycin on her eyes. Also started giving her an antibiotic treated water along with the rest of my flock and animals. Just looking for some advice seeing how I just went out this morning and another hen started getting a watery eye so I separated her from the rooster.

    Evidently, it will spread through your flock, so if one needs treatment they all will. Important to get the correct diagnosis so any prescribed meds will be effective.
