Last week Friday we picked up our 4 chicks. Each of them are different breeds. we noticed on Sunday ( 2 days later) that one chick was being pecked at right above both her eyes. They did get little sores in that area. I separated her. I then bought a red heat lamp and put her with another yellow chick. The other two are darker birds that are on another side of a bin.
I noticed yesterday that the injured chick wouldn't open her right eye... and the left eye was fully opened. Today both eyes are shut. The injured chick is doing well.. eating drinking and seems fine other than her eyes. Can I do anything to see if they will open? Or can a chicken survive not seeing out their eyes? Thoughts would be appreciated.
