is it just one eye or both? is there swelling? any other drainage or symptoms? if it is just one eye could it be scratched? mine had a scratch on her eye and i treated with saline flushes and a moisturizing ointment purchased at walmart for about 2.50. treat for 7 days 2 times a day. it took longer for my chicks eye to completely heal but it is all normal now.
If there are NO other symptoms of upper respiratory infection, it could be a scratch. I would use terramycin eye ointment...should be able to get it at the feed store. If not, I would do what jenni said. If there is any discharge from the nostrils, you need to start it on antibiotics asap.
