    I have a six month old rooster and just about a week ago his eye looked clear. He acts fine but I don't want it to get infected or something like that. We think that his dad might have pecked it and somehow injured his eye. PLEASE HELP!!!!

    Flush the eye liberally with saline solution. Then carefully put a small amount of terramycin eye ointment in his eye until it clears up. Neosporin ointment can be used in a pinch.
