    Hey is this normal for their eyes? These are Barnevelders, they are 6 days old (if that makes a difference) It looks like little tiny feathers around their eyes, so I am not sure if I am being overly worried or if something is wrong. They are acting fine, eating, drinking and running around, but if it is a problem want to catch it first.

    Okay, freaking out, these little guys mean a LOT to me. I have raised several sets of chickens and just never noticed this, I guess because I never watched them that closely [​IMG]

    Yes, but these are special, they are from Trisha (TSL_Ranch) I have been wanting them for a year. Never paid attention to any of my other chicks this close.
