Could be, starting from stress. How old are the does? You will want to worm them, and if they are young you will also want to put them on cocci prevention. Do both of these things now and don't wait. Using a sulfa drug for the cocci prevention will also help with this little bit of shipping fever they are having, which is not only going to give them weepy eyes but also a little lung congestion and a runny nose, if it also has a fever going along with it, call one of us on the 911 site and you will need some meds. Honestly I would order some Tylan 50 if they are young and Tylan 200 if they are older, some needles and syringes just to have on hand anyway. Lots of worming, and cocci information on pervious threads. Feed stores and jefferslivestock.com sell terremyacin a very mild opthimolic med for the eye, which will help clear this up if it is the starting of pinkeye, more than like chlamydia. Keep us updated! Vicki
