hi guys

ive got a hen that has 2 different pupil sized eyes.....

one is a large pupil which is normal i think.....or i always see pictures of chickens with large pupuils

but the one on the other side is very small...

i thought it was blind on the smaller pupiled side...
but it isnt...ive tested it and it can see both sides just as well......

why is this?
could anyone explain?>

LOL !!!! Sorry, Only makes me giggle a little b/c one of my pupils is smaller than the other (thank god I have dark brown eyes, so its not to noticable)..... Went to the doc about it a while ago and had all kinds of test done and saw all kinds of eye docs only to find out it was called an "aides" pupil (named after the doc who figured out what it was).... cause from either a real bad cold or a punch to the head.... well since I know for sure I didnt get punched in the head I figure it was from a bad cold (had many of those) Sorry to get off subject here, I have no idea if chickens can get the same thing but who knows !!!! Has she had/have a cold ???
