    These guys have had runny eyes since they hatched out . I have put neomycin and polymyxin b in their eyes off and on with no response . What water antibiotics will clear it up ? They are separated now but never shared the eye yuck with any of the big girls . It is only in one eye on most of the chicks . Only 4 out of 12 have the issue . Any ideas ? Thanks

    It would probably be best to post on the ER forum, those members really know their stuff when it comes to medical issues. Here's a link to get you there: Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures

    I hope your little chicks will be improved soon.

    G’Day from down under jdeppe02 [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry to hear about your little ones and best wishes for a full recovery. Definitely check in with the folks on the ER Forum.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    Since the drops aren't working, they need their eye problem diagnosed, so they will be on the proper treatment.
