We have a chick that hatched less than 24 hours ago. It doesnt open its eyes even when the other chicks run into it and make it move, I dont know how long its eyes have been closed. When i held it a few minutes ago it opened them a little bit and then when i put him back it closed them again. It is also sleeping(cant tell if it is sleeping or just lying down) the whole time its in there unless another bumps into it, then it'll get up a for a speck of time. It still isnt balanced hardly at all when the one that hatched around the same time is. None of the other chicks are doing this. Is something wrong with its eyes that it wont open them much and he feels safer lying around? This is the first time me and my sister have hatched and we are pretty woried about the chick. Thanks, Lisa Update: I had it out this morning on a paper plate with some food and it pecked at it so when i put it back a showed it where the food was and it started eating and drinking. Well now the baby is doing so much better. Running around and acting like the others. Eyes are open, standing a lot more and eating and drinking good. Thanks for reply to my post.
