    we had a few hatch last weekend. after they some what dried off in the bator we put them in the brooder. we noticed a few of there eye lids were stuck shut. we thought they were crusted over from hatching. after we cleaned them with water. after a few days they started to swell up. any one ever had this problem? i know its a infection but from what??

    Are they having trouble breathing or anything else? Or just the crusted eyes ? Is there any goopy stuff coming out of there eyes ? Where they your eggs you hatched or did you get them shipped ?
