I am hoping someone will know what I need to do. I have a young chicken that is sneezing, and has one eye swollen and closed shut. I had another chicken that did this but both eyes were swollen shut. I have treated with antibiotic mixed with their water but nothing has changed, I did this for 1 week. What am I doing wrong? am I keeping their coop too moist by putting straw down on the ground? Do I need to keep them warmer. I'm in kentucky so the weather has been crazy.. cold one day warm the next... I do hope someone can shed some light on this for me. I have researched this but can find nothing on disease of the eyes. Thanks
I would consider calling a vet. I for one don't know much about chickens, and if my grandmother was still alive I know she would have an anwser for you. If the antibiotics are not working, your chicken my need either something stronger, or even ointment for the eye itself.
