    It does look wrong, but not serious. Some chickens just develop something similar to "ectropion" in dogs, which just means their eyelids are too loose. If it isn't runny, swollen, inflamed, and if he isn't squinting or blinking a lot, I would leave it alone.

    He's a handsome dude by the way. : )

    Ok thank you! I was worried that it was genetic or something. Yes thank you he is very handsome I can't wait for him to grow some more.
