help poorly cockerel eyes closed
« on: September 03, 2009, 16:00 »
 i have a young wyandotte cockerel who yesterday had one eye closed but seemed otherwise ok so i left him thinking he may have had a bit of a fight.
this morning he was very quiet off his food and his other eye is very nearly closed too, i checked both eyes no damage but his whole face is very hot, i have bought him indoors and given him some water but have to dip his beak to make him drink.

any ideas anyone? there is no discharge no smell etc he looks very sorry for himself. his poo is watery and white only, his colour is good

could be mycoplasma, if it is you will need antibiotics from the vet asap.
