Last week on Tuesday I noticed the rooster had his eye shut. Barred Rock - about 6 mos old. The flock had been locked in the coop for 3 days at this point due to the freak snowstorm we got here in Massachusetts. I put Opthalmic ointment on it for 3 days and it seemed to be looking better. Went to FL for the long weekend and got home today. Caretakers said everyone was doing fine. Went in to find rooster acting normal (enjoying his hens), but saw that he was now opening his eye a bit more. Looks like there isn't an eye in there. The eyeball itself is, but I can't make out an iris or pupil, or anything eye looking. Not to be gross, but it looks like chopped meat. I am afraid he was pecked, and bad. It is not swollen, and the red around his eye is normal. No pus or drainage. He is a really good boy and I'd like to help him. There is a vet in the next town that specializes in birds, so I am going to give her a call in the a.m. to see if she will take a look at him. Do you think the eye needs to come out and be stitched up? Will he be ok with one eye? They have an enclosed, covered run, and are locked up each night. This rooster is a pet, not for breeding or eating.....we like the crow, and he's beautiful too....so I'd really like to do what is best for him. Any advice?
