    I have no idea what this is, can anyone please help?

    Here's a picture, sorry it isn't that great. You can't see them, but there is tiny clear bubbles in the corner of the eye. The chick still eats and drinks fine.

    Sounds like an upper respotry infection they can cause eye bubbles...

    Sorry, I'm not much help, but maybe someone will come along and help you out. I'm sure it's some type of resp. illness, just not sure which one. There are several. MG; bronchitis and ILT, etc.

    Pretty sure this is respiratory disesase, but it's difficult to say for sure which one. Doesn't really matter. If you are intending to show or sell your birds and/or eggs, it would be best to cull this bird in an effort to prevent chronic respiratory disease in your flock or risk spreading the disease to someone else's flock. If this is strictly a pet, you may wish to treat with one of the following antibiotic choices: Streptomycin, Dihydrostreptomycin, sulphonamides, tylosin, erythromycin or flouroquinolones.
