    separate him and give four drops of polyvisol (childrens liquid A-B-D vitamins) in the beak once a day for a week then taper off.
    For the eye itself you will need to flush it with sterile saline solution (you can make this yourself by boiling 1/4 tsp of salt in water for five minutes and cool). You can afterwards treat with an eye ointment especially for the eyes .
    Be on the look out for any respiratory symptoms.
