    Our polish and easter egger chick are both having swollen, leaky, oozing eye. Some times it looks like they can't even open them. They are both under a month old. We have a silkie chick with them, she's having no signs of this.

    It looks just awful. I've been cleaning them both with a Q-tip and warm water. Then applying neosporin to their eyes. I read that some place. I'm just not sure what to do?

    Please if anyone can help I need it!

    SOUNDS TO ME LIKE THEY HAVE CAUGHT A RESPIRATORY DISESE

    THEY DEFINETLY DO NEED SOME ANTIBIOTICS TO GET THEM OVER THE RESPIRATORY DISEASE


    also you could put Vetrex on the head of all the chickens sick and under the wings and 1/2 tsp down the throat
    besure and put a drop in each chickens eyes

    and 1 tsp per gallon of water
    this is a herbal medication that does help with the repiratory disease

    you can get it from Smith poultry supply

    putting it in the wet mash

    FOR each chickenNyour treating

    and feed each chicken
    2 tBsp full of the wet mash probiotic and what they will clean up in 20-30 minutes
    then clean wet feeders and restock dry crumbles

    do this twice a day for a week
    then quit the Vit E make just the wet mash probiotic
    then once a week for life

    All the while after mdicating the birds use
    do not use ACV with medication

    2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar per gallon of the chicken water so their gut flora wil be regulated
    they should have this at least 3-5 days a week
