    So sorry to hear this. Look closely and see if you can tell just what's going on. Are they maybe just crusted closed? Have you tried to wash with warm water?
     
  3. Hi!
    Are they looking better yet?
    I'd recommend a warm damp cloth to get their eyes 'ungooked'.
    Are they perky otherwise?
    Good luck!

    Well good! At least they don't have a genetic thing going on. One from my last hacth was genetically blind (had an eye deformity) and I had to cull. It still haunts me. [​IMG]

    Do a search on here for crusty eyes. I've seen posts about it before and I know there are some great answers out there.
