    I thought I would post this just for informational purposes. Went out to feed late Friday and gasped when I saw one of our pretty baldhead roller cocks with his left eye closed and oozing yellow liquid. He had been fine earlier that day, so I was pretty sure this was an injury, not disease or...

    I've just rescued a young feral whose left eye has a wart like growth on both of the eyelids. The eyelids are closed but I was able to open them gently and it seems the eye itself may be all right. Has anyone seen anything like this? Thank you.
