Sore Eyes

Postby Amber » 15 Sep 2012, 14:39

Hello all

Looking for a bit of advice.

Last week I noticed my boy had a sore eye, he had it closed. I bathed it with some mild salt water and it cleared up by end of next day. He is now back to his usual cheeky self.

However today I have noticed 3 of the girls and one 6 week old chick now have one sore eye each. I have bathed the too but wondered if anyone knows if hens can get infections like that - eyes are not red or weepy, just closed.
