    I have 9 laying hens, (3 white leghorns, 2 brown leghorns, 2 blackrock, & 2 plymouth barred rock).
    My question is, why do they keep getting bubble eye? This is the 3rd time in the 18 months i've been keeping them. On the last 2 occasions i have got the medication from the vet, & will again. Just wondering where i'm going wrong.

    I believe "bubbly" eyes are a sign of disease (like a chicken cold). I would recommend posting in the "Emergencies/Diseases/Injuries and Cures" section.

    Thanks for the advice. I'm new to this forum stuff and not sure where to post bits, but I'll get there

    sounds like something they keep passing on to each other. Do they exhibit any respiratory problems?
