One of my week old chicks has both eyes closed all of the time. She seems to be eating and drinking, but the eyes never open. What should I do?

I would just wait a few more days, some chicks do that.. it even depends on the breed sometimes.. what kind is it?

And if it has constant eye crusties, it may be a sign of an eye infection.. but can be treated with antibiotics, that u can get at a local feed store or tractor supply. hope this helps.
