    Has your chicken had any other mysterious things about him change lately? Does he exhibit any signs or symptoms of illness or disease, like,,,weight loss, change in bowel habits, lethargy...anything else we could go by besides the change in eye color alone?

    ...and are you certain that the eye color is light orange/yellow and not grey?

    ...also, jaundice due to liver ailments or disease won't turn the iris of the eye yellow, only the surrounding sclera (also known as the white portion of the eye).
