    I have a Sizzle chick that was born with an eye that has always had foamy bubbles in it. It looks like this: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_u8oyaXAWwLE/SNSRzTFjaWI/AAAAAAAAAPU/Yn8DhJWj5lU/s400/08-09-17-10-341.JPG

    it's
    just in the corner of it's eye and it's never bothered the chick. I have recently found a vet that will treat chickens and am wondering if it's worth a trip. It's not contagious, as none of the other chickens have caught it. Sometimes it's gets crusty and I will wipe it out, but it always comes back foamy like that. I really appreciate any information anyone may have. Thanks! <3
