About a week ago I noticed a little bump on my black copper Marans beak that was bleeding a bit, I cleaned it with saline water and used antimicrobiano spray and bacitracin ointment thinking she might have hurt herself on the fence or something but ive noticed it’s only gotten bigger and today her eyes look a bit more swollen and one has watery bubbles on it earlier. This is her now, I’m not even sure where to start on treating her, and should she be isolated? Everyone else seems fine and she’s also acting perky as usual for now.

The wound on the top of the beak can be a common wound from pushing the beak through fencing. It should eventually heal on it’s own. The bubbles in the swollen eye could be from a pck to the eye or possibly a respiratory disease. I would rinse the eye with saline eye wash and apply a dab of either Terramycin eye ointment or plain Neosporin ointment twice a day. Is she does not improve, or you notice sneezing, rattly breathing, you could give a round of Tylosin in her water for 3-5 days. Here is where to find Tylosin:

Thank you, does she need to be isolated?

If she has been exposed to something, such as a respiratory disease, the others have as well. I usually keep a sick chicken inside the coop with others for company. You can keep her in a covered wire dog crate with food and water to monitor her.

Update: took her to the vet and she wasn’t really sure what was wrong, maybe thought it could be a respiratory infection but there hasn’t been sign of more then one random sneeze here or there and there’s no discharge from nose, she was prescribed trimeth-sulfa for 10 days, she’s been taking that and we are at day 8 but I feel like she’s getting worse instead of better, her other eye is now also affected. I started flushing the eyes out and adding terramycin but I don’t think anything is making this better - the 10 days are up soon and I’m not sure what to do after that, just let her heal with time? She’s still eating and drinking but I can tell she’s got a bit lower spirits or energy. The ointment is on her in these pictures.

Yes, that looks like possible mycoplasma, but sometimes a peck to the eye can cause weeping, pus, or infection. Tylosin, an antibiotic can help, but your vet can prescribe it.

What’s she’s on won’t treat it? Should I quit adding terramycin to the eyes?
