    Have you added any new birds to your flock lately that could be carriers of respiratory diseases such as MG or coryza? The symptoms you describe are probably one of those diseases, unless she was pecked around the eye and developed an infection. Do you smell a bad odor around her face that could be coryza? Tylan 50 injectable will treat MG, while sulfa drugs such as sulfadimethoxine or Sulmet will treat coryza. Testing will tell you which you are treating, but they do make carriers for life for any chickens near them.

    I have one doing the same thing. Been told she has "allergy" eye. Put her on antibiotics for 7 days now and she is lookin great. This is my 3rd time with her doing this. Her eye bothers her then she scratches it and gets in trouble from there. Good luck with her

    Is a vet the only place to get antibiotics?
