    Last Friday he walked 3 steps out of the coop and then nearly made it I barely should we butcher him or try to keep him alive. He is 10 months old. What's wrong with his eyes can some please help me.

    What is your reason for the capons??? Pets that do not crow, or Italian style chicken cuisine ?

    Quote:Can you give a few more details of what is wrong?Pictures of his eye, possibly? Are his eyes not seeing, and he trips, or is there eye drainage or swelling?

    His eyes are peeling out and he's not waking around

    Do his eyes have drainage and crusts on them? Can you be a little more clear? Is he drinking or eating? If there is crusts on his eyes, clean them off with warm compresses, and saline eye drops. Offer him water with electrolytes or Save AChick.

    Sorry for your loss, but it's much better that he is not suffering.
