Having combed the BYP posts for info on the above symptom I thought I would add Mycoplasma to the list of possible causes as I have not seen it mentioned.

Our Australorp presented with this this morning and I have her in quarantine with the only antibiotic I have - which luckily happens to be the one this site

http://www.nadis.org.uk/bulletins/disea ... mosis.aspx

cites as the best one for the condition. Tylan Soluble. Mind you it is 3 years past it's expiry but as it is Good Friday it is my best bet.

By the time I got back up there with the drugs her eyes were clear, but she is in quarantine with the drugged water regardless. She is fine in every other way apart from the occasional sneeze and a slight wheeze in her breathing. She is moulting and extremely cross at being shut up.

I have had new birds for two weeks and though they are separate and seem fine themselves am wondering if they were carriers.

I guess I am hoping that this is an abberration and with some TLC it will go away. She is 9 years old and we'd like to keep her a few more so she gets to live in the country with us rather than having been a city chook all her life! That means she has to live another 3 years until we are ready to (read "Can afford to") retire :)

I have found it very hard to keep disease from spreading between flocks, even with quarantine and changing gumboots between flocks and so on. It may well be the new birds and mycoplasma. But if they show no symptoms it may be a strain which is not too aggressive.

As you have already done all the right things all I can say is "best of luck". Older chickens are more resistant fortunately. So she may well see the country yet.

Thanks Globi - as it happens that one sighting of the bubbly eye was it - kept her isolated for 36 hours and she showed no further signs so she is now back with the flock!

Fingers crossed it stays that way.

Still ok - seems it was an aberration. Thumbs up! Our head and oldest gal - do not want to lose her just yet! :)
