I have a Dominique rooster who will be a year old in December who developed a swollen face (behind his eye, only on one side) about 2-3 weeks ago. It is slowly getting bigger. He is acting perfectly normal......no other signs of illness whatsoever. The swelling isn't in his comb or wattles, and has only increased in size by a small yet noticeable amount in the past 2 weeks. At first I thought he got stung by a bee or something. But 2 weeks later and it looks like it has gotten a bit worse? He is in a fully enclosed pen with several other hens and another rooster (they get along well, he's actually dominant.) No one is showing any signs of anything abnormal. All the other birds in there I either hatched myself or got directly from a hatchery. I have other chickens on the property, but other than a bought of cocci, everyone has been healthy. NO sneezing, rattling, bubbly eyes, bad smell, odd deaths, etc. in anybody. Does this sound like it could be SHS, even though its only really on one side? And if so, is it contagious? What can I do to help the guy out? Like I said, it's not as bad looking as some pictures I've seen, but I don't want it to get worse. I tried to take pics, but I was by myself and they didn't turn out well. Ideas?
