Hi everyone, i'm new to this forum and would really, really appreciate some help with a issue i'm having with a chicks eye. It's a baby chick, not sure of sex as yet. The breed is a bit of afew things, but mainly bantom features etc. I'm not sure how long it has had the issue with its eye, but at least since its been in my care which is about 5 days. Its eye has continually gotten worse, and i removed the chick from the coop tonight as i've noticed it seems slower and less energetic than the other chicks. Sitting off to the side as its brothers and sisters run about mum as she scratches. It has been eating (cracked corn), but not as much as it was the first few days. So far i've been flushing its swollen red eye with saline solution (from the hospital supplies i have), but today when i got the chick out, the eye seems to have completely closed over with a layer of crusty yellowish stuff =S This is a picture of the chicks eye from a day or so ago before it was covered with the layer. I will take a photo of the way it looks at the moment as well. I really, really appreciate any help you can give me! I want to give this little guy/girl the best chance at life i can! I have it in its own box in my room, and it seems to have grown extremely attached to me since, and i to it. Thank you for your help everyone!
