    Hello! I recently hatched chicks and have one that has not opened it’s eye. When I try to open it myself it looks watery. The first day it kept falling over on its back. Been hand feeding it myself. Any ideas?

    Dip a q-tip in warm (not hot) water and carefully wipe along the line of the eye lids a few times a day to clean out whatever may be bothering it. That would hopefully help.
