    One of my quail chicks (~2 wks old) won't open his eyes.

    Any ideas? I tried checking if he was dehydrated or something and gave him water and tried to moisten his eyes but it didn't help.

    Quote:The left eye is a bit better off - it can open it slightly as you can see in the pics.

    The right eye is the worse of the two - you can see in the pic I posted this morning its slightly open, but now its completely closed.

    None. Just these 13 chicks in a brooder inside the house.
