Can you look at her eyes and see if both black pupils and the colored irises are the same? Are the pupils round or irregular, or are they very tiny? Is there any cloudiness in the eyes, or have you noticed any eye drainage? There can be several causes of blindness in chickens ranging from cataracts, Mareks disease, avian encephalomyelitis (AE,) vitamin A deficiency, to infections or injuries. Here are some articles to read about eye disorders:

ok I had to take her and shivy the other 2 into the coop tonight lol. I set her onto her usual roost and I swear she started purring like a cat lol. She had a nicely bulging crop, and looked a little better for getting a good meal into her. I'm going to keep a good eye on all of them for a while. Isn't it a wonderful thing. I go ahead and process my cockerels because they really injured one of my girls and things settle down with the 3 girls getting along only to have this happen. Hopefully this is the last bad thing that happens for a long time. I'm not going to get Dark Brahmas again. They're too fragile for my nerves. It's like having 3 extra toddlers in my home lol. Oh well. I'm not going to get rid of them. They're here until the day they go into my soup pot.
ok day 2 of Everest being back outside with the girls. She is much happier, eating, and is starting to see a little better. I'm still watching her closely. Tomorrow I'm going to go ahead and worm them, then do a couple days of probiotics. Hopefully she keeps improving and gets completely better. Wish me luck.
