    I have a young OE hen that has two watery eyes and drives her nuts. None of my other chickens have it. Shes eating and drinking and does not act sick. I have not been able to find anything online about it. Does anyone know what it could be and what I can do for her to get rid of it?

    Just some thoughts.....
    Can you look at her eyes and see if there is anything in them?
    Also, take a sniff in your coop. If you smell ammonia, then that is your culprit. If you replace the bedding, you should see a difference.

    This post is old but I think I have found the culprit for my hen.
    Possible Infectious Coryza....I started treating her today with Terramycin. After searching online for eye problems and such I came across a site with really good examples for chicken diseases. I found that IC is the closest of all the symptome she has. I have started a new thread on this.
