    Okay, I have a chick that hatched out late (day 25) who I am not sure what to do with. He seems mostly blind with his skin around his eyes turning black and swollen shut eyes. He is active but weird like will sleep then run around frantically before falling on his back and gasping. Is he contagious? What does he have? I put him with the other chicks and now I am worried.
