hey all,


In the recent fortnight i have noticed that some of my quail have sore eyes. When checking over one of the japs i couldn't even see an eye and all over it's eye lid is scabby and underneath it is runny and gunky. Then my bobwhite cock (BOB) started to have eye problems and upon checking him this morning i notcied a big white spot in his eye. So is this an isolated case or is this the start of an infection pandemic? Will these 2 quail heal or will they be permanantely blind or worse in the infected eyes?

Cheers,

Jayden

Clean their eyes with warm water... nothing in it .. and use gauze... not cotton wool

small bits of cotton wool come off and go into the eyes

The white dot... sounds bad...

How often do you clean out your coop and remove all the droppings... sounds like ammonia burn with ulceration due to ammonia burn

Remove the two birds in question and put them into an area that is clean and warm and dry with fresh food and water .. and keep it really clean and clear their eyes three times a day

If they can't see they can't eat and drink.. and they die

Do they show any other symptoms please JJ

hey sandy,

They move round, they eat they drink. But my main concern is the bobwhite cock, he is important to my breeding program but because of the eye problem i haven't had one fertile egg from the hen as of yet :evil: Shall try the eye cleaning thing, the bobwhite is just a wee bit wild!! There are no other syptoms in him but the jap quail has like a lupy growth thing like a scab on his eye lid and on parts of his face.

Cheers,

jayden
