    One of my six week old girls who is usually really spunky has been walking around keeping one eye closed. If the other girls leave her alone, it's almost like she's just really tired and will start swaying as if falling asleep. Should I be worried about this? This my first flock and I don't want to overreact if it's nothing, I'm just worried about her holding one eye shut while the other is open.

    Thanks for any insight!
