    Newly hatched chick, hazy eyes and just chirps constantly. Does not appear to react to food. Thoughts?

    Blind? Deaf? Do you have any pictures? Did it sustain any injuries or troubles hatching?

    It was actually the largest of the 6 that hatched (incubator/random asst. of cross breeds) seemed ok, in the last 12 hours has just steadily chirped more and more until now it is almost non- stop. It seems uninterested or unaware of food placed in front of it, the other chicks come over and eat it. As for deaf, it doesn't seem to respond like the others when we enter the room now that you mention it...

    Can't get a good picture, got it to eat and drink a little bit. Just. Chirps. Non. Stop.

    Unless you hold it cupped in your hand...
