    I have 8 hens and 2 roosters in a fenced in area with a coop. Today when i went to go feed them i noticed one of my cickens had like white eyes so i went to pick her up and i noticed it was like a bubble glazed over her eye. She is acting strange and not eaing with the others. it is both eyes so i dont know if she is blind or not. Please help!

    She is most likely blind... wave your hand over her and if she doesnt move then shes blind...

    She didn't move:( Why was she fine one day and blind the next? What do you think caused this?
