    Hi my 3 week chick has one swollen eyelid, and the eye is milky white. No white worm, pus, lesions sighted. It is drinking, eating and moving well. I noticed it 3 days ago

    G’Day from down under yoshig [​IMG] Welcome!

    I am sorry that your little one has an eye issue. Unfortunately I have no experience in that regard but suggest that you try posting on the Emergencies & Diseases Forum where someone will most likely be able to assist. If you could include some pictures of the eye that would also be helpful.

    Emergency & Diseases Forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    The ER link Teila gave you is the right place to get your bird some help. Hope the eye clears up soon.

    Best of luck to you!

    You may want to investigate "Eye problems," on the search thread and see is anything matches your chick's problem. Is only one eye affected?
