First time w/ baby chicks and we have one little blue laced wyndotte that appears to have an infection. The first day we brought them home I noticed this little guy seemed to have a tiny piece of wood shaving in his eye- my husband told me to leave it alone because I might injure him and since it appeared just on the surface- I did so (hesitantly) The next morning- it was gone and he seemed fine. The next day his one eye was covered in mucous and he sounds congested- no snot coming out his beak-and the other eye remains crystal clear. He is eating/drinking fine and doesn't have diahrea. He has remained stable in this condition since Friday. I have had to treat one of my chickens but have no experience with chicks. I have both the optical Terramycin and the injectable-I'm unsure if this can be given by mouth or at a safe dosage. (I also have Tylan but My guess is that may be too strong for a chick- but that's simply a guess. What medication would you suggest/dosage? Could it be an eye infection? Should I treat all six with medication via their water? I do have a local vet but they are out of town until Wednesday. She treated my previous chicken who had a respiratory illness and then caught botulism. (She's fine now-but I'm rather wary of the wait and see approach my husband takes.) thank you!
