    just picked up 3 mille fluers 2 days ago and when i got home i noticed one had crusted/glazed eyes what is the best solution for getting rid of the infection in a couple day old chick, i have been just wiping it with warm water the last 2 days but doesn't seem to be getting better. I did not separate them as they all came out the same cage when i picked them up and i am suppose to be taking them to my sons preschool monday for a couple weeks so the class can watch them grow. So what option do i have for clearing the eye infection?

    Try some Neosporin or get terramycin from a feed store. you can also try dripping tea bag juice into the eye.[​IMG]
