chick with eye problem
I have a Milles Fleur bantam, 3 1/2 months, with an eye problem. When she was a few days old I thought she was blind--eyes were opaque. But then I realized her eyes were sometimes clear and normal appearing. The problem is that the eyelid(s) seems stuck in closed position first thing in the morning. She will just stand there until she can see enough to get around. This morning I brought her in, gently wiped her eyes with a wet cotton ball and because it seemed like there was some gooey stuff around her eyes I put a little antibiotic cream on. By the time I put her back out, her eyes were working. Has anyone had this problem with a chick? Will it get better? Is there anything I can do?
