I got three bantam chicks last week. One of the chicks had a closed eye from the beginning. I have full grown chickens but I'm brand new at raising chicks. And after all the different things I've read trying to figure this out, now I'm more confused. Mainly I don't want to do too much and end up hurting her. I've been cleaning it with a damp paper towel, and it began to open around day 4. There is a clear goop that keeps coming out and although I've been cleaning it off it forms a little bit of a crust, and makes it hard for the chick to open again. I read alot of posts that said to use neosporin, so I tried that last night and this morning but haven't seen any change. I also read to use Duramycin/Tetracycline, I work at a feed store so that certainly wasn't a problem getting, but now I'm terrified I'll overdose the tiny baby! So as I sit here reading post after post, staring at my bag of antibiotic powder, I figured I'd just ask my own question, and HOPE someone answers soon????
