    I have a 5 month old EE with a nasty eye. She is eating and drinking fine. I found her and her sister in the house last night. Her sister past this afternoon. She had a swollen eye but her's had a boil that came up last night. It was sooooo sad. now yesterday this one only had a watery eye and now look at it. She isn't showing any other symptoms. Her poo looks fine. I have been reading about eye worms. Is that what this is. I have not seen any worms. Any ideas would be helpful. I have treated her eye with Terramycin eye ointment and have put Terramycin powder in the water along with Infant Vitamins.Hopefully the pic's come thru.

    She is breathing Ok , no weezing or sneezing. I think it is itching her. She keeps trying to scratch it.

    I was leaning that way too. But it was too weird the same side, the same thing. I hope not. I will check the coop but how do I keep them out. I have to have my vents open. That is the only place they could of come in. Can you give chickens Benydril?
