    My last chick to hatch out has something wrong with one of his eyes. He still gets up and moves around, eats and drinks fine, but every time I go check on him, one of his eyes is glued shut. If I pull it open for him it's all liquidy inside and the eye itself looks cloudy (dark grayish instead of black). I have some terramyacin ointment and tri-care, can I use either of those to help him? If not, what else can I do to help the eye heal before he loses it?
