    I'm having a similar problem with a two-week-old poult. Her "winking" eye looks more watery than the other. Not sure what the issue is, but I am going to start her on some vitamin water to see if it helps.

    Watch for signs of illness like crusty nose, sinuses puffing out, eyes bubbly or goopy-- you might need to treat with a general antibiotic like duramycin.

    Sometimes just one eye or one side of the face is affected-- the bacteria is in the sinuses under the eye which is why the eye is often affected and the nostril.

    this is common , you can find other old threads to research this and get better and more in depth info.
