Alright, I wrote a long introductory thread the other day but my brower freaked out and I lost it so I never bothered typing it up again. Anyhow, I had planned on getting some chickens NEXT spring, however, I took in a hen and rooster this spring due to a friend being unable to care for them. I'm not sure what breed they are (something else I need help with) but he keeps saying they are "game" chickens.. Wouldn't there be a more specific breed type? The hen is a light brown, small with golden-ish colored feathers near her neck and head. The rooster is black with a possible hint of red but I'd need to take a closer look. Anyway, the main problem here is that they had four chicks hatch around July 4th and two of them are missing an eye! Any idea what is causing this? The chickens aren't very tame so I can never really inspect them.. They aren't terrified of me or anything but getting within touching range is a no-go. This is my first time raising chickens and I'm worried I've done something wrong. Why would two of the four chicks be missing an eye? Is it a pecking issue? Should I separate them? They all stay together and I've witnessed no fighting. If there are any ideas or suggestions out there, please share. Worries about the welfare of my chicks. Thanks!
