    My girls are looking a little rough here....one's comb is completely fallen over full of scabs....one of them has a white membram in the corner of her eye...it's even on their waddles and around their eyes....will this go away? I feel like I should be doing something for them.....[​IMG]

    Quote:The nodules will eventually disappear on their own in about 2-4 weeks. You can use iodine to help dry them up, do not get any iodine anywhere near their eyes or nostrils. I recommend using terramycin eye ointment or neosporin to prevent/treat eye infections in and around the eyes. Egg production will slow, but will eventually return to normal. Eggs are safe to eat.
