    Two of my chickens, one chick and a 6 month old chick exhibiting a large puss swollen eye. Any idea what this could be?
    They are mixed with ducks and geese. I have never had this issue before. Sorry no pic

    Try Terramyacin Antibiotic ointment. I get it from Tractor Supply or Southern States Cooperative.

    Clean the pus by pressing it gently.
    Or else the bird may loose it's eye.

    Also check whether it's a contagious disease. Isolate it to avoid big problems.
