    Hello,i have had 3 birds within the last week and a half have 1 swollen eye.a little crust on the eye but thats it.with the first i thought maybe he got pecked but what are the chances that 3 got pecked.its wierd,only 1 eye is swollen on each bird.no other symptoms.eating, drinking,pooing.no discharge out of eyes,dont hear any rattle.i wiped their eyes with saline on a cotton ball everyday.the first ones eye is totally healed the second 1 has her eye opened and almost all the swelling is gone and the third i just noticed today and started wiping her eye with the saline.im really scratching my head here.[​IMG] ive been reading that alot of people are having problems with the respitory problem,so im getting a little nervous..
    any ideas? thanks...
