    After moving my girl into the lower section of the shed she hasn't been the same. She began banging her head on the roof which had me very concerned- I narrowed it down to the fact she was on the same level as the guinea pigs which had spooked her. Since covering the guinea cage she has stopped the head banging.

    This was on Sunday. Ever since, I've noticed that she can only open her left eye - her right eye has gradually closed in the days since, and now she won't open it at all. Could this be due to the head bang session on Sunday? Like, a head ache if that's possible? I don't want to stress her out further by trying to grab her, she is very shy.

    Any help and advice is appreciated as I am worried :-(
