little kya gets crusty ones a lot, i usually have to wipe them off the corners of her eyes once or twice a day, is that normal or are her eyes tearing too much or something?

What does it look like? Normal "sleep crusties," as far as I've seen, are easily removed and are often sticking just barely to an eyelash at the inside corner of the eye. My kitten Eve has a URI and her only visible symptom (other than slight lethargy for the first few days) is a tiny bit of yellow mucous smeared under her eyes. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it's not because she's recently washed it off.
If I remember right, your cats are all pretty young, correct? URIs aren't unusual in kittens. If you think that the "crusties" are abnormal, and it does sound like a bit much, then you should have a vet look at her.
yes, kya is 3 months old. they look like a tiny dried flakes, just outside the inside corner of her eye and yes are very easily wiped away. they arent yellow or green. they kinda remind me of a teeny scab.
