my barnevelder babies hatched two days ago. I have left them in the incubator till this morning. When i moved them to the brooder i noticed two of them had their eyes kind of stuck. can i do any thing to help them? I noticed the humidity had gotten a bit low in the incubator, could they just have dry eyes?

Try a wet warm wash cloth if they will let you. Otherwise, what I have done before, is use a eye dropper squirted their eyes with warm water. They could just be dried/crusted shut.
