    I was looking at my rooster tonight. And he has what looks like a white blob floating in his eye. No sneezing, or gunk from the nose. Just a weird white puss thats in the eye. Is that worms?

There could be debris in his eye, I recommend flushing the eye with saline solution. If it was scratched, use can use terramycin eye ointment or neosporin in the eye. If it doesnt clear up or heal in about a week or so, you might be dealing with a CRD.

    I never pictured someone with a Harley being on a chicken forum.
