    Last night I picked up a 7month+ old rooster and some hens from a breeder. They seem like extremely healthy birds except that when I got home the rooster seemed to open only one eye and it looked crusty. My husband said that maybe it was because he was ready for bed. Today he can open both eyes (and does when I hold him). Also, when I try to check the eye when he doesn't feel cornered, he alternates which eye is closed. Is this normal?ΒΈ
