    i have a young red golden male, his eye swelled over a 24 hour period. I have taken him to the vet and they injected him w antibiotics thinking it was a type of micoplasm carried by chickens. that was 3 days ago and his eye has only gotten bigger, the entire side of his head is huge today! cant hear out of his ear or close his beak all the way. though hes still active, eating and drinking.. right now i have him separated and under a heat lamp in an aquarium in the house where i can keep a close eye on him.. any ideas???

    first pic is the side thats alright...

    Then theres the swelling as of 3 days ago. pic taken at the vets office..

    And then the swelling as of now, 3 days after injection of antibiotics.

    Looks like a different drug needs to be used and that sinus drained.

    I would recontact the vet and give them an update on the bird's condition.
