    This afternoon I herded my flock into the coop and noticed some of them had one of there eye's clogged. They were all sitting much more calmly then usual and i'm not quite sure what to do. None of the ones that were infected had both of their eyes closed, each time it was only one eye. I would really enjoy some advice on what to do. Thanks in advance.

    When I say 'clogged' I mean the eye lids are sealed shut by what looks like a dried liquid. For some of the birds it was still watery, like mucos. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures, I'll ry to get some up by the end of tomorrow...

    Isolate her in and put her in a small dog kennel inside.Flush the eye with water then apply Terramycin Eye ointment which can be found at a local feed store.Pics would be great.

    what you can do and I would do is this,

    isolate all of the birds infected in separate cages,
    to help prevent an more chickens getting the eye infection.


    I would use my
    WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPIE,
    FOR EACH AND EVERY CHICKEN THERE.
    here is recipe in total with vitamins,
    WET MASH PROBIOTIC RECIPE FOR A SINGLE CHICKEN.
    IF CHICKEN IS MOULTING AND IS STRESSED DO THIS FOR ITS HEALTH:
    ALSO IF TREATING SICK CHICKS OR ADULTS.
    IE: WORMING, ANY TYPE DISEASE OR COCCIDIOSIS ETC:
    ...
    Glenda Heywood now the
    natural probiotic recipe is this:
    1 qt of dry crumbles
    2 qts of milk, sweet, sour, or buttermilk or a mixture of all or some
    1/4 cup of non flavored yoguart ( no artificial sweetmer)
    mix good.
    do not make sloopy JUST WET AND CHICKENS WILL EAT IT BETTER.
    chickens do not like sloppy feed AS IT STICKS ON THEIR BEAKS.


    ADULT CHICKENS
    NOW THE IMPORTANT INGRIEDIENT FOR EACH CHICKEN FED.
    and add 1- 400 mg of Vit E (PER CHICKEN FED WET MASH PROBIOTIC MIXTURE) by cutting the end off the vit E capsule for each chicken fed this wet mash.


    Putting the vitamin E in the wet mash and mix wet mash good to get vitamin E in very chickens amount.

    This for each chicken your treating.
    So for each chicken use 4 tsp of mixture and 1-400 mg of Vit E,
    twice a day for them till the birds feathers are grown out,


    then just three times a week feed wet mash and ,
    Cut back on the vitamin E to 400 mg once a week,


    and feed each chicken,
    4 tsp full of the wet mash probiotic and what they will clean up in 20-30 minutes,
    then clean wet feeders and restock dry crumbles,
    IE: or each chicken your making wet mash probiotic for:


    DO THIS:
    4 tsp of feed and 1 tsp of the yoguart and just enough milk to mix it good not sloppy wet. And add the 400 mg Vitamin E once a week if not sick.
    IF SICK feed 1-2 vit E 400 mg twice a day per chicken that is sick.


    CHICKS RECIPE:
    DO THIS:
    IF CHICKS ARE SICK add a 1000 mg vitamin E ONCE A DAY TO THE ABOVE: ie: 1 QT OF CRUMBLES AND 2 QTS OF SOME KIND OF MILK,
    AND 1/4 CUP PLAIN YOGUART.
    (this is for any and all kinds of sickness )
    ALSO IF TREATING CHICKENS WHO ARE SICK,
    DO NOT put Apple Cider Vinegar in the water while giving medication.
    OTHER WISE use 2 tabelspoons of ACV to the gallon when not feeding medication.

    You are probably dealing with a respiratory disease, possibly mycoplasma (MG.) It can cause conjunctivitis with crusty eye drainage and foam. It is contagious, and can make carriers of all birds exposed. Tylan 50 injectable antibiotic can still be bought at many feed stores, or Tylan 200 which is 4 times as strong. Dosage of Tylan 50 is 0.2 ml per pound of weight given orally or as an injection into the breast muscle, twice a day for 5 days. Clean the eyes with saline or warm wet soaks to the eyes and apply Terramycin eye ointment twice a day. Getting some testing may help identifying the disease.
