Are you saying you don't understand why the chicks get pus in their eyes and nostrils?
Are the chicks dying?
Why are you using lye? I would think that would be an irritant to the babies' respiratory systems.

Sometimes they do die. I use the lye when I clean out the boxes. I was told that it would take care of any Bacteria in the boxes or the ground, but I was having this problem before I started using the lye.
