You all have been very helpful and Ive learned a lot from this site. We have 8 polish chicks around 6 weeks old. We recently put them in the coop with 3 young hens going on 5 months old and a young one legged duck. A few days ago we noticed a baby chic had an eye problem, she was keeping one eye closed. I put water on it and she opened it for a bit but then it would close. This morning we found her dead and noticed another with an eye problem. The hens seems to get along with the chics but today we saw one corner one and peck at it. Now we are not sure if the littles were injured or if eye infection is a symptom of a deadly disease. We are getting a cage out tomorrow and removing then from hen coop. Prayers for all the baby chicks in need please us know if you have any advice.
