My little cochin chick that just hatched, looks like his eyes are still closed. How long until they open their eyes?

It looked like it was a clean, easy hatch. He does have a few pieces of little shell on his body still, but not really gooey or anything like that.

Take a Q tip and a cup of warm water, and gently swab his eyes, then very carefully open them with your fingers. You may need to repeat it after a few hours.
