PLEASE HELP!!! chickens eye!!!?

What you describe has left me with three thoughts, eye injury, eye infection, and Fowl Pox.

Eye injury- I would imagine this would be a one-bird situation, and you are saying that multiple birds are having problems. Unfortunately, when a bird becomes injured, it shows many of the regular sick bird look. So check for any places in your chicken housing that could prove to be dangerous. Also, look at the eye to see if it appears to have been poked.

(I once had a young rooster that got jabbed in the eye with a piece of medal fencing. He swelled up dramatically, had chills, and suffered from diarrhea. After learning how to live with one eye, he was perfectly fine).

Eye infection- Is your chicken housing moldy, or dusty. These situations can cause eye infections. You could also have birds with allergies.

Fowl Pox- is a viral disease, that spreads slowly. In other words you could be dealing with this for several months. Symptoms include: poor egg production, poor growth, diabetes, depression, casceous (cheese like dead tissue) deposits in throat, mouth, and sometimes trachea, warty wattles/comb, and eruptions, and scabs.

There is nothing you can do to treat fowl pox. The disease for individuals tends to run 14 days.

What can you do? Prevention is the best medicine. Fowl Pox is created by bugs, so make sure your coops are clean. Also, open skin also increases the risk of fowl pox, so make sure your birds aren’t fighting.

Separate- whenever, you see a bird come down with any illness, make sure you separate it from the flock immediately, and clean the area in which it lived. I like to let areas air out for a while as well. Then once the bird is separated decide what to do.

Coryza...is another possiblity. Symptoms include facial swelling, noise discharge, swelling of wattles, loss of condition, sneezing, snortness of breath...basically it is going to be respitory, so check if the bird is breathing well. This can be treated look here

However, with this disease eye lessions, are post mortem- after death.

What to do with the bird? That is completely up to you. Personally I do not suggest taking it to the vet. I would never let an contagious fowl leave my property, you don’t know what it could affect. Besides, the vet can’t do anything for Fowl Pox. Besides, with all the money that you could save from not taking the bird to the vet, you might as well get some healthy birds and start all over again.

Culling...Culling is the poultry breeders fancy work for killing. It is mean, but once you start to breed you find it extremely necessary. There is nothing like an illness to wipe out your flock. If I had to deal with fowl Pox, and noticed that one of my birds had it after I separated her from the flock, I would most likely cull her, and hope that it ends there. As the longer it is left to wait, the more likely you are to have problems. If I was dealing with something that wasn't so contagious, and could be treated, I would give it a try.

I wish you luck, and will contact you through email, or edit of this post if I find any more information
