Chicken Diseases

Good day

 My chickens have swollen eyes and there is a hard substance in the eye when I squeeze it.

What is the cause of this types of sickness in chickens and how can I prevent it? this is the second time my flock is being affected?

    respiratory diseases can cause mucus in the eyes and if left untreated this hardens and becomes more difficult and take longer to treat.
    you need antibiotics to treat this . the rest of your flock may also need treatment
     ive also used colloidal silver sprayed onto the eyes twice a day to help clear it and adding acv to their water will help to break it down too.

    Could well be mycoplasma by the sound of things.

    As Kath says all birds will need to be treated.
