    I will have multiple postings in different area's of the board. I wanted to give an update on how my babies are doing, issues I'm encountering, housing, pests & illnesses. Search for me. : )

    This is my Light Brahma at 14 weeks old. Her left eye has been perfect but the right one has been "blind" for most of her life. I suspect it was pecked at but now I'm noticing a couple of other birds eyes not looking the way I'd like to see them. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Left eye looking good ...

    Right eye ... head cocked because she is looking to the left.

    This photo does not do the damage to my chickens eye any good. It's sunk in & without a doubt ... blind.

    My dark brahma "Leghorn" ... Not sure if it's the way she is looking, if this is normal with a chickens eye or if I need to worry about some kind of eye disease/sickness.

    Never opens wider, never blinks, never closes, never changes, no drainage, no extra redness, she doesn't scratch at it ... it's just there.
