Gooy eye chick needs help


12 Years

My chick has a gooy eye its 6 days old, from incubator didn;t hatch by itself and is not as strong as could be. Eats and drinks fine now and runs about but sleeps more than other chick a day older. Any ideas what to do to help ? Only two chicks to survive all others dead in eggs.
I was given a chick with a nasty swollen eye and I didn't think it would make it. I used warm water and a cotton ball to gently wipe the eye twice a day. It was scabbed over and I could see the eye moving underneath the scab. Eventually, the scab came off and she's doing fine now.


Now 4 weeks old:
Thanks for that am very worried as the chick was so weak to start with but what you say is encouraging I will try that.
The photos look great. I am new to Forums and a bit of an old person when it comes to computers so will have a bit of trouble trying to post photos I think.
Your chick is lovely!!!!!!!!
