    Ive just recently started raising chicks and some of them have developed red bags around their eyes. they are also pretty quiet and are being attacked by the other chicks. what should i do?

    I would seperate them if they are being attacked. Are they red from being picked on or were they that way before being picked on...What type of bedding are you using? Is it dusty where they are? If none of those they could have a infection of some type and need an antibiotic.
