    Hello,
    I am new and have two chickens with runny eyes. THey act normal eat,prune themselves look healthy. The only things is that there eyes are runny no sneezing,coughing or anything weird. THe bad thing is that they stink like they are infected. Has anyone had this happen to them and what did you do about it. One chicken is about 5 months old and the other one is older.
    thanks

    It sounds like Coryza, but it could also be another type of infection. The only way to tell is to take them to see the vet.

    You can try Terramycin eye ointment and see if that works.
