    I have an almost 8 week old silver-laced wyandotte with one watery eye. It almost looks sticky. She acts normal, good appetite, not lethargic or anything of the sort. Do I need to quarrentine her? Any ideas?

    It could be a cold, upper respiratory infection, something in it..a number of things. Might not be a bad idea to keep separate. I rinse with saline solution, like what's used for eye contacts, and keep an eye on the chick. If there is any sneezing or such, might need to medicate.
