Not sure, it could be anything from infection to the beginning of a respiratory infection.

Are there any other symptoms, rasping gurggling noises, flem in the throat?


Please isolate the bird from the others and get him in warm surroundings and hand feed if he is not eating on his own. Keep a close eye out on him and your other birds.

You can begin treatment with a drop of colloidal silver in each eye per day, this is a start for treatment of eye infection, but the bird will require more if there is respiratory infection or some other issue going on.

It is a sign of respiratory and possible Ornithosis, you will get this from time to time specially if your loft is dusty, or it could be from fighting, you need to get a respiratory eye drop, all the pigeon supply store carry this and different other brand. If you can't find any of this eye drop, your local feed store should carry an eye ointment I think its eromycin ointment this work great also. Let us know if this help.

When you say few yellow swelling, is it just one swelling or is there more than one? Any yellow swellings anywhere else?

Rusafa,
:) Most probable causes have been stated. I always suspect fighting/incompatability amongst your birds. If you want to treat the bird, you have to isolate it from the other birds. You risk the other birds' health by having common water/feed. Initially I thought resp. infection, but 5~7 swellings might be indicative of external infection, possibily from fighting. If you can move eggs+bird,that would give recovery a better chance. Always watery?...have you considered some anti-bacterial powder?..some ppl use a cold tea bag as a compress for the eyes. If not powder then some sort of ointment might be feasible. Try uploading pics, I know there was some server/site problems recently, but they seem to have been fixed. Best tool for diagnosis, pics help every1 give helpful opinions. Regardless, I'ld really advice on isolating him+eggs+mate for a bit, it might heal naturally. I hope others can recommend some good ointments/powders. Peace, YaSin :)

With several yellow swellings it could be avian pox, not just fighting. That is only a possible view, as we cannot see what you describe. If it is something like that, then your other birds are at risk.

James - if there is pox (and it's only an 'if') antibiotics will not help, as that is a virus. Nothing described so far indicates canker.

I thought the same when rusafa added more on them. But I guess that with a pic we'll see better.
