    I am not sure what is wrong with my rooster!!!! He has started getting this yucky bubble stuff in his eyes!! I whip it away and within minutes it is back over his eyes again!!! Please help me! Has anyone ever seen something like this before?!?!?! He can not see to walk so he just stands around now. And the younger roosters are now picking fights with him.

    I would separate him immediately. Is it coming from his nasal passages?

    No nothing from his nose. But his mouth is slobbery looking.

    I would indeed separate him untile I found out for sure what it is.. It may be a sinus infection. I would start him on antibotics now. Something like Pen-G, or Tylan50 would be the best thing to try. There is one other, not sure what the name if it is. Does he have any other symptoms.?





    edited to add: I notice the other symptoms in your post/

    No idea...but give hiim supportive care and keep him separate and go from there is all I can think of. Keep him cool, dark, quiet area and feeed him good healthy food and water with AVC in it and keep your fingers crossed. Hopefully someone who has seen this will come along and give you more info.........
