    One of my barred rocks that hatched this am, is NOT HAPPY. It keeps running all over and one of it's eyes it shut. I was thinking of taking a Q tip with warm water on it and going over the eye, or should I leave it alone.

    It could have a little dried gunk on it from hatching, it wouldn't hurt to wash it with the Q-tip but be gentle.
