    How long has this been going on? Did it happen overnight or has it slowly developed? Also, how old is she? I am definitely no expert, but the only thing I can think of is she cannot see because of feathers, but that could not have all of a sudden happened. Does she seem sick and weak, or just a little clumsy/dizzy?
