    Recently, my 2 week old chick's eye won't open; there is no crust, I can open her eye perfectly, but she won't open it. She is drinking and eat a lot, but she leans when she walks.. What can I do to help her???

    Hi and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. A Q-tip dipped in warm water and gently cleansing around and on the eyelid has worked for me in the past.

    Good luck

    G’Day from down under chickchick24 [​IMG] Welcome!

    I hope the folks on the ER Forum were able to help you out and that your little one makes a full recovery.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]
