Hi, this is Dr. Hill. So Lavender has swelling around her eyes and is holding them closed? Can you send me a picture?
No picture has showed up. Tell me a little bit about your chicken husbandry. How many? what are they fed? any supplements? do they free range? where they purchased from a hatchery that vaccinated for Mareks at day one?
So, be careful with spinach and chard. They should be only occasional treats. They actually leach calcium in to the gut and can cause a lower calcium level. Any soft shelled eggs or feather issues? Great that they were vaccinated. It sound like she may have a sinusitis. Any nasal discharge?
There should be a link button. I am not sure what the customer site looks like but there should be a way to request help.
Vitamins and electrolytes might help, but if she has an infection it won't be enough. Do you have a veterinarian who will see chickens?
You are very welcome. If you are satisfied with my answer, please take time to rate. I have nine layers. They are a lot of fun. Take care
