    This is my first try at hatching D'uccle eggs and one won't open one of his eyes. I was hoping it was dried on yuk from hatching so I took a warm, wet cloth and tried to clean it off but it didn't work. He doesn't move around much and I have not seen him eat or drink but he is only 2 days old. I have been giving him electrolytes through an eye dropper and he is drinking that. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. He's the chick in the middle of the picture looking at the camera.
