One eyed chick

Had a chick hatch yesterday in the incubator. Apparently a piece of membrane dried over one of its eyes. Didn't notice it until this morning. The eye is dried and looks like a loss. I tried wetting it but no luck. I have had older chickens go blind in one eye when they were older and were just fine. Do you think this little one would be fine? Or should I get a ziplock bag and a can of starting fluid?

That's funny, 20 some years ago we had a cat at the farm named Belmont, after the race track I guess, he got hit by a car and lost an eye, so they started calling him one eyed jack!

I would think she'd be fine. Wasn't there a chicken back in the 40's that didn't even have a head?

Neighbor retrieved a chicken that had fallen off the chicken truck as it went by- it was blind in both eyes. Mrs. Neighbor has a pretty good sense of humor, and her last name is Kelly, so she named it Helen Kelly. It lived for years, found its way around (occasionally bumping into stuff).

You guys probably better Google the joke. It will come up. As with the chicken, keep it. I had two dozen baby chicks this spring and they when they were about two months old, they were eating faster than the feeder could keep up. So, I got this great idea to put some feed in a square Tupperware container also. It worked great! Until the next morning I checked on them and the Tupperware container was upside-down and had a bird standing on it. I got the bird off of it and there was another bird underneath the Tupperware container, laying on her side, barely breathing and who knows how long it had been short of oxygen. I put her in a separate pen and she just laid on her side for about two days, then just sat there for another couple of days like she was brain-dead. After that, she took off and grew larger than the other birds. Tamest bird off all of them now, but I really don't know if it's from the lack of oxygen or just all the personalized attention that she got.

Keep it. After the first week they tend to not bother each others eyes anyway. If you have several keep a red heat light on them - it will keep them from picking at each other. Throw some grass clippings in there. They won't eat them, but it will distract them from "Patches".

Shouldn"t bother it on its own,if other chickens detect a weakness they may go after it.

I agree. Know little about chickens, however; all animals use the same tactic: exploit the weakness.

I would think the chick will do just fine with one eye. Since blind at birth (hatching) it will not know the difference. Stan
