    I have a few chickens that have yellow cheesy looking discharge in their eyes. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what might cause this and what medicine we could use to clear it up.

    I love to hear if anyone has more thoughts on this cheesy eye syndrome. No one has really given any ideas as to what this condition might be? CRD? Coryza? I am just curious.

    Oh, I can take some pics. They are pics that many may find repulsive. I have been putting the antibiotic, Terramycin in the eye. And it did bring down the swelling quite a bit.
    However, the yellow cheese still remains. You can't even see the eye ball.
    I am a newbie and I have never posted a photo yet. I will try to figure it out.
