Having some eye trouble with my new baby chicks. Noticed that one eye on several different newly hatched chicks looks like the eye lid is shut all the time, and somewhat larger than it should be. The chicks hatched Aug. 18th thru 21st. I did not see the problem then. One of the older chicks that hatched in June also has an eye problem, but was also stunted, she is a lavendar ameraucana, and one of the new chicks is also (that is the only one that hatched out of this batch) but the others are all BR's, from my own eggs, not shipped, and not a rare breed... none of the guineas are affected. Wondering if this is an infection, or a birth (hatch) defect I just missed at hatch time? I caught one chick and tried to pull the eye lid open, but it wont open, the chick acted like it was in pain, so I quit. I'll try to get some good pics later today if I can. Any help appreciated!!
