    All chicks do that. They see the eyes and the toes as food, and peck at it. They will learn, and it will stop soon.

    Thank you so much for letting me know. One of the chick's fluff around the eyes is wet, and it looks like a film is over the eye. Not sure what to do about it. I'm glad to know it won't last.
