Post: A new experience

    Okay here is one that I am perplexed by. Last summer I
    purchased a "proven" pair of Meyers. I have had them here
    now for over 6 months. They have always gotten along
    wonderfully, they sleep right up next to each other, they
    feed each other. I had attached a nest box about 2 months
    ago and they had been working that. The other day I heard
    a commotion and went out to find them fighting to the
    death on the bottom of the cage. It took the water hose
    to break them up. Since then they seem to be getting
    along okay although they aren't as friendly as they were
    before. Also the male's eye is all swollen shut and
    pretty rough looking. Has anyone ever experienced
    something like this and also any ideas for some sort of an
    antibiotic treatment, etc that I could do without having
    to catch the birds??

    Thanks,
    Lance
