    It's only the left eye... No other symptoms that I can tell:

    It also has a pot belly and bare (no fluff) on the breast bone.

    antibotic in the water maybe. I use tylan. Is it just the eye? or any nasty smell or nose goo?

    No nose goo or weird/bad smell, so as far as I can tell, it's just the watery eye.

    You can put one drop of Tylan in the eye twice a day. That should clear it up.

    Well, they eye swelling had gotten worse, but it's stable, I guess. No other symptoms still, but some of the big birds have bubbly eye and gooey noses.

    All the big birds and little bird were bought at the same time/same place. So it's not from mixing birds from different environments and I'm assuming they all have the same thing.

    I've been researching Coryza, but I don't notice any rancid shocking smell from them other than "chicken smell". I'm hoping this is something simple and treatable that will not be carried after it clears up.

    I use injectable but you say drops in the eyes. Is it powder or injectable that you are talking about? I have never done that but Tylan is awesome as an injectable. You can put one drop of Tylan in the eye twice a day. That should clear it up.
