I had my first concern this morning with one of my new baby chicks. I noticed one of my Buffs had one of her eyelids closed. When I picked her up I could tell the eyeball was moving its just her eyelid looked sealed shut. I called the place where I purchased her and the said I could try and give her an eyewash to see if that would help or just bring it in to be exchanged for a new chick.Well I wasn't about to take her back just because her eye wasn't open. So I brought the poor thing upstairs and took a washcloth soaked in warm water to her eye. After holding it on there for a few minutes I was able to gently pull the eyelid apart.
Now she can see out of both eyes! Happy Day.
