    Try a Q-tip with some warm water (wet the area and try to take the shell off) do this very carfully. Make sure the chick is warm after !!

    I get those all the time, LOL. Looks like they like wearing eye patches! Just warm water on a Qtip like the previous poster mentioned. Hope it's going well for you, Tony!
