    Your are on the right track. Have you tried flushing them w/ a natural tear product. It is possble it got dust in them from the brooder or that its inner lids simply arent fully developed yet. Hows your brooder temps? Baby's not getting chilled or too hot right? everyone else doing ok? Sometimes they just aren't right its the luck of the draw. Good luck
