Rattly chest sounds a bit phneumonia ish ( spelling) or a little fluid on lungs
My current House Destroyer ( Lucky lamb ) was very rattley with in hours of birth ( long story, long birth, not good outcome for the first twin, mum buggered and sick from the birth)
I brought him home and fed him small ammounts (100 -150 mls) every couple of hours , and keptt him very warm for a few days .. :) he has come right :) .,. can still get a bit rattley sometimes if he guts to much to fast

I would be getting Vet to check your girl in morning for sure

Apart from getting some vet advice asap, check her eyelids are not turned in. Can you see the lower lashes or are they inturned and irritating the eye?
If so, this needs to be turned out to stop permanent damage.

A few drops of artificial tears, say Optrex, might help her.

Look here at entropion
