    Hi we have a chicken w who is looking awful, a scab on her check. Last week I thought she had a piece of bark or acorn stuck on her skin, since I couldn't get it off I put neosporin and a few hours later whatever it was popped off. Now there is a really bad scab and its swollen. Her eye also can't open. She isn't lethargic but has seemed to be sneezing a bit. Not sure if the scab is causing the swelling or if it is just allergies.. She's less than a year old. Probably about 3-4 months. Ive used neosporin a few times and tried putting a bit of meds in the water for them.. Teravet10. Now her other eye is looking like its starting to close a little and is watery. [​IMG]

    Update, just have 1/2 ml of children's benydril to see if that alleviates any swelling.. Still looking for any suggestions though!
