I just received my order of baby chicks, and it seems that one of them is blind. It doesn't open its eyes and when I try to they don't seem to open all the way. He/she is very weak and I am not sure if it is just weakness or if maybe it can't stand either. I have been trying to get it to eat and drink water, but I am not sure I have been successful. I received them this morning (through the mail), and it is the evening now, and it is still hanging on. I understand from the receipt that they were hatched maybe the 31st. They are Black Australorps. My question is: if it is blind, and survives the night, is there anything I can do for it? I have become kind of attached to it today and would really like to save it if I can.
