    I have new chicks..one is determined to go after the white chicks eyes..probably because they are so black and noticeable. I've separated them now, just noticed it. Poor thing, both eyes are sore..What do I put on them if anything..
    anyone on, please let me know. This has to be painful from the looks of it. I feel bad I didn't notice her eyes..I did notice that the other chick was pecking at eyes, but just didn't notice how bad the white one got it! Thanks!

    Sterile neosporin could be used, but the stuff in stores is not sterile. You could try sterile eye drops that are OTC, or ask your vet for an antibacterial eye ointment. They may not require an appointment for it.

    Quote:Thanks Classic..I remembered that I have silver solution in the house! Love it for infections in our own eyes..haven't had a problem for a while, but then remembered it works so well. My chick is doing fine. I separated them. [​IMG]
