    I have noticed 2 chickens with watery eyes...they have bubbles in them...
    I have read about Infectious Laryngotracheitis, and I think that maybe what it is.

    Is there any medications I can give them??

    PLEASE HELP ASAP!!

    They are OE bantams, 1yr old. They are on wood shaving, but they get let out to FR daily.

    Oh.. ok. I know in my case only 1 of my chicks had the bubbles and I moved them off of the pine shaving & with in a day it went away, but I would NOT use this to direct you as what to do...I am a newbie! But yes, the general chicken public said it CRD.

    If it is IL, it is viral and won't respond to antibiotics.
    There are other problems that present with the symptoms you describe that can be treated.
    Besides the bubbles in the eyes, are there any other symptoms?

    Here's a link that was offered to me & you can go through and read the symptoms and treatments. Look for Mycoplasma gallisepticum about 1/2 way down

    Not really. They are hungry...the only problem is that when the bubbles are in the eye, and the eye is watery...they cannot see to eat the food, so when they shake their head, it clears the eye so they can eat.
