It has been reported that there appear to be more cases of the 'Fat Eye' reported recently.
In the 'Fat Eye' the eye is almost always dry whereas in the eye infected with ornithosis the eye is wet also the fat eye has a tinge of yellow.
Young pigeons with the fat eye tend to avoid sunlight. Also it has been reported that chloramphenicol eye drops have successfully cleared the problem. It is important to keep some disinfecting agent (eg Virkon S) in the drinking water as the 'fat eye' can spread via the drinking water.
