    My poor hen seems to have a terrible eye infection. Someone suggested antibiotic eye drops. Does anyone know where or how to get them? I would really appreciate your help!

    Try Soverign Silver( bio-active silver hydrosol) it's for immune support, & a good antibiotic. I got a 4 fl. oz. bottle at Wal-Mart for around $35. They sell smaller bottles & usually takes 1 drop to clear up eye infections.

    Farm stores that sell antibiotics and vaccines for livestock usually sell the antibiotic eye ointment, too.

    If not, I'm assuming you get this in the pharmacy section at Wal-Mart?

    Easttxchick, try a health food store. I've seen it there.

    If anyone is looking for this, I just bought it on Amazon for $17.00!
    It worked great for our hen's eye infection.
