Whats going on around my hens eyes ?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello There !  I'm a new member and l look forward to much learning on this forum.  I have a concern about a couple of my hens.  It seems that they are loosing pigment in the reds around their eyes.   Anyone  know what this is and what I need to do about it ?   They seem healthy and happy, just loosing color.  I know this could possibly be something bad, but , have not found any info on anything like this on any chicken sites.  I would truly appreciate anyones help.

 

 

 

 

I have 11 assorted hens, 2 roosters, 5 new chicks and 7 more on the way !   I've been raising chickens for about 3 years now without many problems.  We have a happy little "farm" with all these chickens, 3 african pygmy goats and a pot belly pig !

Welcome to BYC!

 

Can you take a closer photo of the eye, ear and comb area?

 

Have you check to see if there are any lice/mites?

Is it powdery like a fungus?
