You could either run a course of oxytet, but I would consider giving the chick Tylan50 injectable, but use it orally 1/4 ml by mouth twice a day for 5 days. I would also get some Terramycin eye ointment and use it in the eye twice a day. You also may want to get the chick tested for MG before starting the meds.
