    My lil man(2 week old Royal Palm) was a lil slow yestarday morning but perked up by afternoon. But now he is keeping one eye closed and it is a lil swollen on the bottom left(right eye). He also keeps rubbin it on his shoulder like it itches. Is there anything we can do for him?

    I hope hes doing better but this sounds similar to something one of my hens had, her eyes were irratated, im not sure whats wrong but it did end up killing her, i guess my only recomendation is get him to a vet or buy some bird anti-biotics..

    We placed him in a separate box w newspaper, kept him wiped down w warm moist wash cloth(to help keep him from getting anything further in his eye) and a lil electrolyte water.....he got a lil worse but by the next morning he was opening his eye more and now it's like nothing happened. Crazy bird....he is waaaaaaaay more adventurous then his two sisters.....they r 6 weeks old tomm
