    I have a silkie chick that is about 3 weeks old. The past two days he's been really wobbly and sickly acting. I just noticed that one of his eyes is sealed up and the other is halfway sealed. What is wrong, and what should I do for him? I'm about to put some neosporin on his eye lid to maybe soften it up and help it open back up. Think that'll work?

    I'd try holding a warm wet rag to his eye untill it softens.
