I have a 10.5 wk old cornish X that has all of the sudden developed a swollen eye. I believe that the heavy cover that I place on top of their feeder may have fallen on him. The eye itself is not hurt, his eyeball is normal looking and he is seeing things fine (food, etc) out of that eye. The eyelid above it is swollen and appears to have some sort of infection (looks like a huge zit) I want to go ahead and cull this chicken, since I don't have the time or money to keep this chicken going for another week or two (we're butcher August 2) but hubby says we shouldn't. Do you guys think I should try to drain the abcess with a needle or something??? NONE of the other chickens are affected by this, which is why I think it's either an infection specific to this bird (maybe from a bug bite) or a result of the feed cover falling on him. This bird is big enough to butcher now. Thanks!!!
