    hi this is my first post we just got three chicks buff orpingtons females they hatched Monday and were shipped from the hatchery we got them Tuesday..they are all very active but theres one that its eye isnt open well I can kinda see the pupil tiny bit I have tried to put warm cloth but its still not opening I am thinking its possibly a deformed eye ..but it doest stop her from running and playing/eating ect like the other two I wonder if it got hurt in shipping well I am reading my mind for the fact she may have one blind eye anyone have this happen where maybe it will open later the hatchery says could go either way and if she is blind in one eye she wont be able to protect herself from preditirs later juat wondering has anyone got any info or sugestions poor baby chick I am just glad she seems happy
