I bought home 4 day old chicks today, and noticed after our car journey one of my little polishes seems to have a sore eye that I didn’t notice before when I picked them up.. I’m wondering if it happened on the drive home or something..
is there anything I can do to help her??? It seems to be irritating her and she’s such a tiny little thing I want to give her the best chance of survival!!
Here’s a couple of pics of the eye
Thanks!!

Is it like a bubble? Is it a third eyelid that's stuck?
I think it was full of pus, it looks like it may have been injured by another’s foot or beak on the drive home as I think there is a small cut in the corner of her eyelid. I have been treating it with warm salty water and eye antibiotic ointment twice a day, plus triple c in the water. Almost a week later and it’s still swollen but I think it’s starting to look better as she can open it now!
