    I have a baby chick, hatched 11-5, that has these bulging eyes. I thought if I waited a few days maybe they would go down to normal but it doesnt look like that is going to happen. Could his eyes have popped out of socket? He seems fine other than the bulging, no discharge or anything. Moves around just fine and peeps and ive seen him find the water and food even though he doesnt seem to be able to open his eyelids more than just a lil crack. He isnt as big as the other chicks, doesnt seem to be growing much. Is there anything I can do for him??? Please help if you can and thanks for any advice!

    I have a chick with the same issue. it was born with very large eyes and as it gets a few days older its eyes look like they are going to pop out. :( Is there any hope or do I put it down??
