    Welcome to BYC. What other symptoms are you seeing? Have you seen any respiratory diseases in your flock. MG or mycoplasma can be a common respiratory disease that causes facial swelling. An eye infection or peck wound could also be a cause, if there is no watery or foamy eye, coughing, or nasal drainage. How old is he, and how much Tylan 200 did you give? Did you give it as a shot or orally? Make sure that he is drinking plenty of water, and offer him some feed with a little plain yogurt in it. Here is a little about MG: http://www.thepoultrysite.com/disea...um-infection-mg-infectious-sinusitis-turkeys/
