    On one particularly day, I had a perfectly normal chicken begin to show signs of blindness in one eye (would only look through one eye and would keep the 'blind eye closed'). in a matter of 3 days she had a cloud over her pupil and I'm unsure as to what it is. It looks like a cloud on the outside of the eye (when you look sideways, the cloud does not enter the eye). She became a little lathargic at the same time. she no longer closes the eye, she just doesn't


    use it. I have also attached a photo. Please help me identify the issue.[​IMG]

    Does the pupil react to light at all? It could also be Ocular Mareks.

    One of my girls has an eye that looks exactly like that! Did you ever find out what it was? She is acting normal, and her eye was fine yesterday. Thanks!
