    Very nice, what breeds?

    If he is under the weather and he sounds to be if he won't open his eyes please do post in our emergencies section. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures
    I'm sure members there will be able to help you out with him.

    Nice to meet you Cheryl. Do you mean he 'can't' open his eyes because they are crusted over or goopy? Or is he keeping them closed because of injury? Makes a big different in trying to treat?

    He may have something contagious - maybe all your birds would need treatment.
