i have 7 polish chicks about 10 weeks old. 5 are fine but 2 of them have 1 eye shut and it looks like their eyes are watering... does anyone know what this could be or what i need to do

No I don't know, but I will bump you up to see if anyone else knows.
It's not just their feathers getting in their eyes, is it?

Thank y'all so much...I wiped the eyes with a warm towel and trimmed their hair just a little and they look much better this morning!

I think you're on the right path. You can also try picking up some terramyacin ointment at your local feed store or TSC. It has worked wonders for me when something like this (usually respiratory related) occurs.
