    Silkie chicken, about 3 months old or so. Its eye is slightly cloudy, it's keeping it closed much of the time. It doesn't feel too bad - it's eating and walking around - but not quite up to par. Help?

    Can you see a vet? A cloudy eye may be a result of a cataract, an infection, or from an eye injury. Vitamin A deficiency and past infection of avian encephalomyelitis (AE) can also be causes. Does she appear to be blind in that eye?
