    [​IMG] My 14 week old Brown Leghorn was sneezing about 2 weeks ago and her left eye was completely shut. We put some Sulfamet in her water for 3 days. The sneezing stopped but her eye is still not open completely. HELP!! What else should I do?

    They have a little tube of eye ointment that you can buy at the farm store.....Maybe take a wash rag with some warm water and gently remove any goo that has pasted the eye shut.....

    The eye cream.....I believe is Terramaycin Optic Ointment.....something like that.

    If she still seems sick, Tylan powder in her drinking water would do wonders.

    Good luck,

    Sharon
