We have a blind chicken...been trying to figure out what to do for her. Her eye is greyish and the pupil is small and irregular. Looking it up it could be ocular leukosis or grey-eye. She has been able to eat by leaving a large, low dish in the pen that she stands in so when she pecks she is bound to find some food. She leaves the pen but doesn't free range like the others. She roosts on the lowest roost. Last night she stayed on the floor of the pen and today, the lid was closed on her good eye. But tonight she ate again in her bowl and made it back onto the roost. We are worried she might be able to spread this to the others but haven't been able to kill her:( Can anyone tell us if she is a danger to the other 7 chickens?
