Sometimes they can be right. But if I didn't do my homework and research she probably would be blind completely seeing as how worms can spread.
One eye closed, one open? - Page 4
Was looking up this thread for a chick that wasn't opening her eye.
there wasn't anything crusty she just wouldn't open it. used warm water and Q-tip to moisten it.
it popped open. had to do this for three mornings. the last morning it was just her right eye that was closed.
took her back to the feed store to show them and they noticed several that hadn't opened there eyes(mid day all running around)
kept the chick she was already family. found a post that said hatchery delivered chicks had low blood sugar. they recommended a drop of sugar or honey in the water.
So for a couple days put sugar in the water now all the chicks are up and moving eyes wide open. "Left eye" is doing fine, and yes I have since stopped the sugar.
kids are hard enough to deal with on sugar.
