Backyard Rooster quit crowing c ugly boil

Asked December 5, 2014, 12:29 AM EST

Our Rooster of 10 laying hens has yellow 2cm oval boil-like in front his ear but under his newly sunk-in eye. he's eating & drinking well. With sterile technique to 3 of us, do I dare antebiotic him pre & post to poke boil or at least visualize the eye better, prior to even touching the mass?

I suggest you consult with your local practicing veterinarian for guidance on any surgical procedure(s) or antibiotic therapy. The veterinarian would be able to assess the situation firsthand and in more detail.
