I have a month old lavender Orpington who has just presented with watery looking eyes, loose droopy looking eyelids and discharge coming from both eyes. She has recently been transferred from indoors to an isolated compartment in our large chicken coop along with five other month old chicks. We currently have four full grown chickens living in the coop. I'm not sure if this chick has been pecked in the eyes or if she has an illness. I would like to treat the chick myself if possible. Any input I can get in this I would greatly appreciate.

At four weeks they need 75-80 degree temperatures.

(90-95 degrees first week of life then decrease by 5 degrees per week until 6 weeks or fully feathered, even on the head)

Yes I agree with arcy- this occurs when they get cold stressed near death. There may be another reason but if she is cold then I'd try to warm her up.
