    I am treating all of my eye problem chicks with vet rx, terrimycin, and rinsed out with saline solution. This one is the worst of them all, he has in between its eye and nose a large lump on both sides. How can I fix him??????

    I've never seen that type of problem. Could it be sinus related?
    What kind of bedding are you using? Has anyone sprayed something near them that could be an irritant?
