    Did you dip their beaks in the water? When you first get chicks you have to do that so they know where the water is

    I peeled off some of what was on its eye and it seems well now, walking in the right direction again
    I hope it stays like it

    Is it still with the other chicks? If not I think you should seperate it until you figure out what it has just be safe. You should keep it close to the other chicks so it can see and hear it's friends and won't fell lonely
