Sometimes the pus can be behind the eye, and when you squeeze it, the pus may come out.
She's doing worse today, the swelling is more severe, and she's acting lethargic. The swelling feels firm.
Do you have somebody that could help you dig the pus out?
Yeah, but I'm nervous about doing that. I can't see exactly where the pus is, but it looks like there might be some on her top eyelid.
No advice unfortunately but I hope your baby has a speedy recovery.
One more to skim in addition to the one I tagged you in...
This is what I see in her eye:
Her eye is in the back, should I try poking the swollen part in front with a needle?
Come see please.
Could 'massage' the area with a warm moist washcloth, might be soothing for her too. Can put triple antibiotic ointment (without pain meds) directly into the eye. I had good success with my hen putting a drop of Visine for allergy eyes in (no adverse affect and seemed to soothe her eye). I know the Visine for allergy eyes burns at first, but within seconds the sting goes away and it really does take the pain away; I assume it's the same for chicken eyes.
I think the swelling is pushing her beak off to one side, and I don't think she's eating or drinking. Should I poke the swollen part to see if it will drain?
