I have a French maran who is about 8 months old. She's very swollen under both eyes. I've used saline solution and Vetrx. Some nasty mucus like goop comes out. I put her on Tylan, but no improvement. Any ideas?

If you can clean as much of the pus and gunk out it will make her more comfortable. It could be viral or bacterial. Denagard (tiamulin) is an antibiotic many use when they have resistant bacteria. It is available online from QC Supply and as a pigeon medication called Chevimulin that may be cheaper. I hope you realize that she is a carrier, and this disease may never be cured.

Thanks, that helps a lot. She's such a sweet bird and lays beautiful eggs. But she stopped laying. I appreciate the advice.
