    Hi. It would appear my chick has wry neck, which I'm treating, and now it would seem his eye is infected, I assume because he can't lift his head out of the bedding when he sleeps. What's the best way to deal with this? Neosporin and hydrogen peroxide? Thanks![​IMG]

    No peroxide, clean it with water or normal saline, and apply Neosporin (plain kind.) I replied to you on your other thread, but are you seeing any watery eyes, runny nose, or sneezing?
