    Hello, I hatched my first eggs ever last weekend and I have a Easter Egger chick who has puss covered eyes. I put a warm compress on them and the puss came off and it looked much better she has no drainage from nose or sneezing and seems strong and normal. My other chick who is a golden buff Easter Egger mix is much bigger and pecking at her but I don't know if it because she's sick or if maybe her eyes could be goopy from the other chick pecking at her. I've never had this happen before and I'm not sure how to treat it. Or if I should cull her as I already have an established adult flock and I keep reading that once they have something they are carriers for life it seems like. Any advice is helpful and I will post pics shortly. Thank you in advance
