    Hi, I think I need to try this for our chick that is having eye issues (little crusty in one, red and kind of swollen on both) ....I am trying to find online something about eye infections but if anyone has any advice please feel free to share [​IMG]

    My question about the Terramycin is this...we have 29 chicks total...2 months old...only the one is having the eye issue...if I put this in the drinking water is it ok for the other chicks to still drink that same worry is that if this is something contagious that maybe I should go ahead and let them all have the terramycin just to be on the safe side?

    Also , how long do you keep them on this??

    Thoughts/ advice?

    Thanks, Jen

    I've had this same question about other meds in the water. Most folks seem to say if the others don't seem to be "sick" then don't don't treat them with meds. Maybe you can seperate the sick chick. That way you are sure that it's drinking the medicated water they way it's suppose to.
