    Hi, I have a frizzle chicken who is about 5 months old. We have had her for about 3 weeks now. Yesterday I noticed that her right eye was closed and seemed to be sensitive to the light. She wasn't real eager to get out of the coop like the other 2 chickens.

    Our male bantam brahma is 6 months old and our other 4-5 month old female frizzle. They are all the same size.

    Today she has been acting lethargic; laying around under the butterfly bush with her wing spread out and her eyes closed. She is normally walking around eating grass or whatever she can find. Her poop is also runny.

    We feed them bread everyday, Formax chicken feed everday, meal worms on occasion, and various vegetables.

    I also applied Neosporn to her eye.

    I am not real sure what else I can do, can anyone help me please?[​IMG]
