    I have three chicks that are six weeks old. Yesterday I noticed one had a bump by her eye. It is behind her eye but in front of her ear. Today she has it on both eyes and another one has it on one eye. I am going to try a vet tomorrow but I am really worried. Anyone seen this before?

    Could they be raised bruises from another chick pecking at them really hard? Just an idea.
