    Hey everyone.

    I have a 2 week old chick that got a piece of wood chip stuck under its eye. I tried to pull it out today but I'm afraid I didn't get it all. Is there anything that anyone would suggest to put on it? I don't think it can see out of it's eye so I'm not holding my breath on it keeping its eye. And I don't care I don't have a problem with a one eyed chicken. I just want to know if I should put anything on it to keep it from getting infected.

    Thanks for any help,

    You could get some Terramycin ointment and put it in his eye if it has caused damage.
