today my polish roo has a swollen eye with yellow gunk in it. it looks terrible so i washed it and put eye drops in it . what could this be from? theres always something . the more things you have the more problems. but their so worth it
Most likely cause is a mycoplasma infection (respiratory) The sinus cavities run right under the eyes, so it appears to be an eye problem when in all actuality is respiratory.
Tylan or tetracycline based meds are best and needed quickly. It is highly contagious so treat all you birds for it.
You can go to Jeffer's .com and find a wide array of antibiotics for this. Look for ones that treat Chronic Respiratory Disease, or mycoplasma infections.
To further verify this is it, does he, scratch at his head, shake his head, listen to his breathing, does it sound congested? All those are other signs of it.
Hope he gets better for you, you're right, more means more problems, but I couldn't live without them!
