    So as I've mentioned before this is my first adventure with baby chicks. I have a variety of 10 that are 5 weeks old now but the kids wanted some Easter Egger chickens. So I ordered them from Tractor Supply. I received 12 in the mail when ordered 10. Three of them have their eyes closed. They almost look like they have Gunk sealing them shut and I was wondering if I could use a warm damp cloth to try to open them or if I'm supposed to let it be. And if you're wondering why some of the feathers look a little wet it's because I feed them for a minute chicken feed which they absolutely love and after eating it they perked up quite a bit. But that's not what's in their eyes they came like that. 20180310_073349.jpg 20180310_073320.jpg 20180310_073339.jpg
