    I have a chick that hatched this last Friday. Recently she started to stumble around and I noticed, she wasn't opening her eyes. She seem to have been eathing and drinking up to now. Her eyes aren't glued shut she just keeps them closed. I have seen her peck at another chick like she knew what she was doing. But, when I reach in pick her up, she doesn't see me comming for her. Anyone with an idea, because I haven't a clue! Thanks for any ideas!! Also, her eyes seem clear. No gunk or anything around them like they are infected...[​IMG]
