    My hen hatched 7 chicks last night and pecked the eyes on 5 of them. She would have done more dammage but I caught her. She killed three, ate the eyes right out. [​IMG] They were ice cold and I brought them inside to a brooder so 4 chicks are alive. 2 are bleeding and one eye looks like it will be dammaged for life. Not sure on the other chick. Is there something I could put on the eyes of a few hour old chicks to help? So Sad [​IMG]

    Plain Neosporin ointment, or Terramycin opthalmic ointment from the feed store.

    So sorry.
