    I need some help. My little baby has a bum eye. They were fine the last few days and now I just noticed this. Here is a picture, can anyone help me out. I saw here open it and know the eye is still there, not been pecked out, it had some fluid that drained out but she wont open it. Also, the area around is bare of feathers. She also is acting sorta funny. she tucks her beak down and then lifts her head and opens her beak, but doesn't chirp unless you pick her up. Is she sick?
