My chick is not having eyes. I help

Hello :frow and Welcome To BYC! Sorry about your chick, you'll want to post in the Emergencies forum about it If it is an older chick that can't open its eyes or has something wrong/injured, give as much information as you can, was the chick OK yesterday, are the others OK etc, pictures might help people figure out what is going on.
If it is a just hatched chick, it happens sometimes that they have small or missing eyes, could be just chance, genetic, or something with the diet or environment, there is a list of causes on this website ie There is usually nothing you can do to fix the eyes, some of the chicks can live if you give them special care, here is a thread where people talk about keeping blind birds etc
Hello there and welcome to BYC!

I am so sorry about your chick. If this chick is completely blind, you may need to put her down. Some people have kept these birds alive, but with a lot of supportive care. You can use a water fountain that makes a lot of noise so the chick can find the water and you can leave food all around this area so the chick can aimlessly peck at the ground to find feed. Other than this, there isn't much you can do for a blind bird.

Definitely click on that last link that Kelise provided for you about someone else with this same issue and what they did about it.

Good luck with your baby and welcome to our flock!
Welcome to BYC!! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

I'm sorry about your baby!

Defiantly check out the links provided by Kelsie.

It is possible for chicks to survive being blind. I raised a blind chick once. If you want further advice, feel free to PM me.
Do you mean your hen pecked out it's eyes? You mentioned you went to see what she was doing. If so, I would take any other chicks away from her and not let her set on anymore eggs.
Welcome to BYC!
We're glad to have you.

I'm sorry to hear about your chick! You've received some good advice above from Kelsie and TwoCrows.
