    One of my baby chicks eye seems to be runny and crusting up. I've put a warm compress on it to get the goo/crust off and that helps temporarily. It started out as being watery and now it's gotten to where it will crust up. When I wiped it this morning some clear goo came out and I put some saline solution in it and put some Vaseline around the eye. The chick has no runny nose or breathing issues. The left eye is fine it just seems to be in the right one. Any suggestions on how to fix this?
