    It doesn't appear as red, did the chick get pecked in the eye by another chick? After the last swollen eye thread I looked at your chicken looks wonderful. Someone will come along shortly and give you some good feedback. Best of luck!

    Not sure what happened. No Blood or Peck mark. The eye was a little bloodshot this morning. But I got some more tylan in him with a syringe.

    I am just worried because I lost a chick 2 weeks ago with something like this but way worse....She went downhill fast and I didnt have a chance to save her. I have been staring my my babies eyes every day and noticed this yesterday. Ive got a bunch....but dont want to loose any more or have any other get it if its contagious....

    I totally understand. We put in a lot of work with our chickens and I don't like to lose any either. When I lose a chicken it never fails it's always my favorite. Hope you can find a solution to this problem and right quick too.

    Bad eye Both Eyes Good Eye

    So.......I need some advice. I have had him on Tylan 3 days and I dont think it looks much better......Maybe a little. Anything else different I could do? Maybe some other Antibiotic?? He seems to be doing well otherwise.....Kinda slow. But NO discharge or smell.....

    I think he might have gotten pecked today. Thats the little red mark.....

    anyone???

    I know this is an old thread, but does anyone know what this is? I have three 4 week old chicks that I picked up from a breader yesterday last night one had both eues like this, and now another one has one eye like this.
