    Oh Geez!!
    Never seen that before!
    Are there actually eyeballs in both on the right side?
    Looks like only the bottom one has an eyeball.

    Hard to say if it will survive....or if it should.
    With that kind of a mutation, there could be more wrong on the inside of it.

    Void where prohibited.
    So when that chick was still incubating, did you take the egg out and shake it real good or something? [​IMG]

    I don't think you can do anything horribly wrong to hurt it, or anything. Just treat it like any other chick, but watch it to see if the other chicks peck at the extra eye, if it has a hard time eating or drinking, breathing irregularities, or maybe the half eye drying out (if there is no eyelid)?

    edited to add: Good luck!
