Hi all, So I received 9 chicks from MPC on Wed... and three of the four salmon faverolles seem to be having problems. I know they are considered more fragile, but these physical problems seem a bit more than just fragile. Two arrived with one eye each not able to open- sort of gunky looking like something sticky had crusted on them. One other seems to have no fuzz on her neck... having never seen naked baby chick skin, I can't tell if it's normal, but it looks a little swollen and water filled...(picture below, taken today). By yesterday (thurs pm), one of the eye problems got her eye open, but it is still crusty and nasty looking around it (see picture below, taken this morning). On Wed evening, I put a little water around her eye to try to loosen the crustiness. Her energy level had been fine the whole time despite the eye issue. The second one with the eye problem, I used some warm/wet papertowels as compress and wiped gently to try to remove the crustys last night. Seemed to help at the time, but now (this morning), it seems even more glued shut (picture also below taken this am). This one is also a bit anti-social and lethargic. She has her moments of running around with the rest and eats and drinks, but more often than not is standing in the corner by herself. 1. Is there anything extra I can do for any of them to help ensure they make it? Should I keep trying to clean their eyes or just leave them?? 2. Is there any indication that any of these have a disease instead of a physical deformity (i.e, should they be separate from the others to prevent contamination?) 3. Should I complain to the hatchery or is this just part of getting chicks? I appreciate your help... this is my first spring as a chicken momma and the first batch three weeks ago was way easier! Although none of these guys seem to have pasty butt (knock on wood), while the first batch had it bad.
