Hi :welcome

Glad you could join the flock! I'm afraid I've never had this happen to my chicks but as there is no discharge or crusty substance there it does sound odd. Are you sure she was not just asleep? Was she on the roost or stood without opening her eyes? You could post in the emergencies injuries and disease section of the forum to see what other members there have to say. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

Good luck with your chicks and enjoy BYC :frow
