    I have a chick that hatched that had an eye larger than the other. Now at a couple of weeks old it is getting even bigger. Almost looks like it might pop out of it's head. Does anyone know what this is about? I was hoping this one would make it as it was the only one I got from a specific mating. Any way to treat? I am probably just reaching for straws here, but gotta ask...
    thanks in advance for the help

    eta- I will try to get a pic tomorrow with the assitance of one of my older kids

    Pics will definitely help. What breed?

    It's an araucana (I think [​IMG] , I had project lav ameraucana hatch at the same time) so I will have to take a better look at it....I just don't want them to get all riled up again if I go to get a pic this late, I can hear them quite well from my bedroom
