    Gosh, I didn't help! YOU came up with the tobramycin! [​IMG]

    I'm sure your little one will do just fine. You sound like a good chicken momma! (if you're a woman!)

    her eye is the same today i don't know if it will get better [​IMG] maybe it is a defect but i swear it was not there a few days ago. anyway it does not bother her the least bit. [​IMG] it appears that the eyeball and the eyelid don't line up exactly right. wynette, i saw your chickie it seems to be the same thing. i wish i knew what was causing it and if it affects the chicks sight in any way.

    [​IMG] Oh, they are so beautiful! I have been wanting to get some golden campines myself, even posted for them here on BYC. Did you get yours locally?

    I sure hope your little one gets better.[​IMG]

    Thanks for the info; I am currently doing business with a lady from Kentucky that has over 17 breeds of poultry, she buys and sells a lot. She is coming in this week to pick up a group of my WBT Japanese bantams to get another bloodline mixed in with hers. She has a friend in Michigan that raises golden campines and might get us hooked up. As for getting some golden campines myself, I sure am working on it! [​IMG]
