    Hi :welcome Jade

    Glad you could join us here! Sorry to hear your chick has this growth :hugs This could be an infection in the eye or a respiratory can cause swelling sometimes too. I see you have posted in the emergency section, I'm sure members there will be able to help you. Have you posted a pic? This is always most helpful.

    Good luck, I hope chick is well again soon :fl
