    My chick hatched this morning and her eyes open but she keeps them closed even when walking around. I have 4 others that hatched and they don't seem to have a problem. Has anyone experienced this before?

    I am not sure but remember that chicks are normally born under the momma hen and stay under there most of the time at first and it's dark. I think the light bothers them. You might try dimming or turning off the lights and see if that helps. If not then I would just wait and see. As long as it eats and drinks then I think it will probably be ok.
