    It could possibly be ocular marek's disease: I recommend that you read up on it.

    You should study her for any other symptoms, and possibly remove her from the others 'til you can figure this out ... there are links at the bottom of my response that open in a new window; click on each, and bookmark 'em for reference. Please, be sure 'n follow up on your post ...
