    I hatched 6 other baby's in the last day and this was the final one number 7 and his eyes do not look normal. He is hardly moving and has only opened eyes once or twice. Will he live with the eyes like that?[​IMG]

    They seem a little more normal now. He/she is just way smaller then all the others I hatched so I think that's why they seemed so big. Plus it would barely move and will hardly open one of the eyes still. IT hatched at 11 today and still isn't getting around as well as the other. The others progressed much faster is what I mean. She is very tiny.

    I had a chick last year that was very small and weak and didn't move around much. You just have to give her/he some time and they will probably make it but there is a change she/he won't but I hope it will. My was on the verge of death and she is perfectly fine now. Yours doesn't look as bad as mine did. Make sure to give news if she improves! I hope she/he comes out okay.

    What breed are they and where did you get the eggs? Could she just be a bantam?
