I have a silkie chick that hatched morning that was VERY sleepy with not a lot of activity for the first 6 or so hours. It did open it's eyes in the beginning, but just tended to close them and sleep a lot. It has perked up quite a bit, but now doesn't open it's eyes at all. I've put a light film of polysporin over the lids to make sure they aren't stuck. I can force them open with my fingers, but it closes them immediately again. It will drink when I dip it's beak but isn't eating at all. I can't tell if the chick is blind. I had a chick born without eyes...that was different. Also, this chick has a very strange peep. In humans we would call it a "cat's cry". Anyone with any experience like this? I'm fairly certain this chick will need to be euthanized, but just looking for input prior to doing that.
