    We've had them for almost 2 1/2 weeks and all are doing well. Tonight I noticed one bantam chick with a watery eye. The other eye is fine, and the chick is acting normal. All of the other chicks seem to be fine also. Is it a possible injury or something else?The eye itself looks fine, just watery. I'm a first time chick owner, so I'm not sure what the problem might be. Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance!

    It may have a little infection going.

    I've used neosporin over the eye before and it's worked... someone else may have a different idea for you.
