Thanks so much. She JUST started laying, so she is right at POL (which someone said was when it usually shows up), but that's just by deduction because Paula and Lissa have been laying 48-50g eggs for over a week, and I found a little 40g one on Thursday. I could be wrong (didn't get three eggs that day) - I don't think she's laid one since, though I found a tiny shell-less egg under the roost today.
She's not acting REALLY strange, moving and balancing fine. Just enough for me to look her over. She is vaccinated. I'm realizing that her eyes have looked like this for a while, I just haven't looked at them so super close before - she doesn't particularly love to be picked up. (It's both eyes, but no other symptoms that I can tell). At this point, everyone's SUPER exposed (and all the other birds are vaccinated as well - though I can't recall whether the CL cockerel is, got him from someone), so I'm taking my time to think about whether to do anything or not. She actually ranged a lot outside today (as if to prove me wrong).
I've read the whole big Mareks article/post, and I'm taking deep cleansing breaths, simultaneously hoping it's not and preparing myself if it is...
