blind older hen

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have a 7 year old rhode island red and she is blind all a sudden! No injuries or sickness. Will eat grass,but no feed or scratch...probably because she cant find(see) the feed bowl. She walks slow and carefully and runs into things. Its only day 2,so is there any reason for this blindness all of a sudden? Can this be fixed? Is this a sign of old age? Can the vet help her? Anybody?

It sounds like an old age thing. Is she able to go into the coop at night?

Yes,after a long struggle with the ramp,she finally just jumped to the top of the ramp,I guess because she cant see to walk up it.Is there a pill or something to help her immune system? Maybe its a disease?

Are her eyes white or clouded? Also, have you tested to see if she's blind.
