    I have a RIR which has been, I guess, sneezing on occasion. It is just a quick high pitched sound as if she is clearing her nostrils.
    No swelling
    No congestion
    No discharge.

    Just today I noticed she was closing one eye. She had a stiff, kind of blade of grass of sort sticking from her beak which was very close to her eye. She also had a poopy butt.

    It is windy today and was very windy yesterday. Maybe the eye was caused by the wind and/or the stick.

    She laid yesterday and seems OK otherwise.

    I removed the foreign body and put a double dose of vinegar and one clove of garlic cut in four in their water tonight.

    Any suggestions or comments are welcome.
