    I hatched a chick yesterday that has one eye that is pale yellowish (like pus). He's eating, drinking, and walking around normally. Has anybody ever seen this ?

    I had a chick hatch with what looked like an eye infection. I wiped it gently with warm water/paper towel twice a day. You can also use antibiotic eyedrops that people use as well. It cleared up in a week, and she is fine. Good luck!
