    Try washing their eyes with saline eye wash or look for the eye ointment called, Terramycin. You might see it at a feed store. Also, try to research "Pink eye" or type in "Chicks have crusted eyes" and try to match the symptoms to your chickies.

    Praying for your little fluffy bundle of feathers! :)
