    My chicken, pearls, has a bump in the corner of her eye and if the light shines a certain way her pupil will be white, i think she can still see out of it. I looked up chicken eye cancer on google and some pictures of children with a white pupil showed up, that's what her eye looks like.
    What should I do?

    Look up eye worm and see if that's a possibility.
