    Welcome to BYC. Her eye looks crusty with drainage that could be a sign of a conjunctivitis and respiratory disease such as mycoplasma (MG.) Is there any bad odor around her head? I would get some injectable Tylan 50 at TSC or your local feed store in the cattle aisle. Give it orally 1 ml for 5 lbs and if she weighs more than 7 lbs, then give 1.5 ml twice daily for 5 days. You will need to purchase 3 ml syringes and 20 gauge 1/2 needles.

    Do I give it orally or inject it?
