    Quote:Wow - I'm not sure - it sounds like it MIGHT be eye worm. Where do you live? Do you have any other chickens? Have you separated the one with the eye problem?

    Can you take a picture of it and post it here? Pictures help a LOT with diagnosis.

    I believe she has canker. I posted the following from another thread... I heard it can be in the eye too. [​IMG]

    t is called canker
    it can be in the nose, ear, stomach, and throat and is not curable
    yes a bad case in the gut will make them poorly
    you can try and medicate them

    (yellowish growth in beak, intestins etc it is treated with flagyrl see if you can get it there?

    Personally we used to raise pigeons as well as chickens
    it is not curable and bird is always giving it to other birds thru the salive in the drinking water
    the reason pigeons get it is they beak feed the babies and are constant carriers of the disease

    it is cheezy growth and most discusting as there is no definite treatment
    other than flagryl
    here they quit making flagryl some vets still have a supply

    search the byc database under emergencies forum keyword canker for more info. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
