    I have 5 chicks 2 days old. 4 of them seem to be having trouble opening their eyes. they are in a brooder with a red bulb. their eye lids seem to be stuck together. i tried a little warm water which helps but moments later they cant see again. any thoughts?
     

  2. Sounds like a eye infection which can spread from one chick to the others, try Terramyacin you can find this at your feedstores.
