    Had a shipment of Longtail babies come in and 1 has swolen popped out eyes. Acts fairly healthy and not sure if completely blind or not. Have been using saline solution and antibiotic ointment 2 times a day for 3 days now. No change better or worse. [​IMG]

    Such a cute chick.

    I'm not sure exactly what has caused the eyes to pop out like that.

    Make sure she is getting enough water - you can use some Sav-A-Chick or Nutri-Drench in the water if you have them.
    Feed her some wet chick starter as well.

    Let us know how she is doing.
