    This is one of my 8 week olds from cackle. I've noticed that her bottom lid on both eyes seems low. Is this something to be concerned about or maybe just a genetic thing? Everything else seems normal. No other issues.

    It could be genetic. If there are no symptoms of illness and she is eating, drinking and active, then personally I would leave her be.
