    Is it possible that a 6 week old silkie chick could be blind? How would I know either way? I appreciate any thoughts.

    Yes, it's possible.

    People with blind chicks will certainly respond here. The key thing that I've read on the boards is that blind chicks will have difficulty finding their food. Try doing a BYC search for "blind AND chick" to see what comes up.

    Good luck & keep us posted.
