    I have a about 6 week old chick who started with runny nose and eyes, I have started with vetricyn in her eyes and vet rx on her beak, electrolytes in her water. Need to know if I can give tylan, sulmet, oxytet or what is best to use.

    Could your chick by any chance got wet and got a chill ? They should not get wet for at least 3-4 months, they acually could die of a chill, if no access to heatlamp soon after.
    Hope it has recoverd.
