    hi one of my two peachicks has a swollen eye and blocked nose both on the left side. it is drowsy but it eats and drinks, it has slowed down with its growing and it is about two weeks old. got it from the market at about a week old. it is about two weeks old now. it started one morning when i went out to check on it and noticed that its eye was closed. i left it and it stayed the same all day. the next day its eye was covered in a white film which i pulled out, it had the same film the next day, but not after that. each morning its eye is glued closed with snot it chirps diffrent and gurgles as it breathes. i have put garlic in its water. does anyone know what it is and how to cure? i have one peachick in the cage with it but it is not showing any signs, its growing fast, and is very lively and healthy looking.

    If it were my peachick I would take it to a vet or treat it with Baytril or Cipro. Can you post a picture of it's eye?

    I wonder if it has more than one thing going on? Peachicks will often have a respiratory infection and coccidiosis. Do you have any Corid?

    At a feed store like Tractor Supply. You'll find it in the cattle section and it comes as powder or liquid.

    Powder dose is 1.5 teaspoons per gallon or 5-7 days
    Liquid dose is 2 teaspoons per gallon for 5-7 days.
