    My beautiful big rooster can't see and has stopped crowing and is sleepy. Yesterday he seemed slightly lazy, then today i found him wandering around away from his hens. I noticed he was running into things, so I caught him and checked his eyes, one is swollen and red, the other looks fine, but he seems to have no sight in either eye. This all happened within 24 hrs. Please help if possible.

    basically it can be mareks
    the eye mareks allows birds to be able to eat and drink but has to be put where the chicken can reach the feed and water in same place each day

    there is no cure for mareks of the eyes
