Chicken with a bad sinus?

 I've had a little trouble with my Chook, Lenny, recently.  Lenny came down with a very watery and mucousy eye. I took him to the vet the day after finding his watery eye and the vet diagnosed a respiratory infection.  A week later Lenny's eye had cleared up but around the eye had become puffy.  My vet did some research on the problem and came to the conclusion Len had a sinus infection and potentially an impacted sinus.  Len stayed on his antibiotics and despite my worries he was going to need surgery (or potentially to be euthanised), his vet gave him a fairly promising outlook today and thinks that things should return to normal but to be vigilant of the eye area and that this kind of problem will certainly recur. 

Happy days for Lenny I think!
