    This is a 1.5 (?) week old new Americauna. Check out her eyes. One is alert and normal looking, the other one is sort of squished and crusty at the one side. Has anyone seen this before? What is it and what should I do? Putting coconut oil on right now, but then what?

    As long as it seems like she can see out of it, I think she is ok actually.

    Could be that she may be blind in that eye. I have a hen 3 years old & she is blind in one eye. Born that way.

    This is my chicken named Bad Eye. I will also say that I have culled a few chicks when they are old enough that I can tell their eye is not going to get better.
