So most of my flock of 7 got a respiratory infection last month. Symptoms were swollen bubbly eyes and snotty noses. We took the two that were the worst to the avian vet and got antibiotics, Tylan, and an antibiotic eye ointment. All of the birds responded immediately to the medicine and were better The vet said that the bacteria was most likely mycoplasma. One chicken however, a young silkie roo going thru a growth spurt has not recoverd. He seems to be feeling okay but one eye is swollen to 3 times normal size and has been for a month. We have tried several things with no response and really need some new ideas. Here's what we've tried so far: First he had a full course of both the oral and eye antibiotic. Then when that didn't work we did an oral childrens tincture of echinacea and eyebright and goldenseal oil topically on the swelling. When that didn't work we decided to try the Tylan again and starting putting Oregon Grape Salve on his eye. He seemed to improve a bit and then stopped improving. We'd really like to poultice his eye but don't really know the best way to do that. We are also considering doing an usnia treatment (a antibacterial fungus used to treat antibiotic resistant things like staph). What we don't know if it would still be bacterial at this point or just the swelling. And if it can go septic? We don't think there is any fluid under the swelling that needs to be lanced. Any ideas? thanks!
