I had a dark brahma hen named Lil' Bit that was partially blind from hatch. After a little special care when she was a chick she grew up just fine. The only concessions I made to her blindness was to take her in the coop at night and put her up on a roost; she couldn't see well at all in dim light. She learned to wait for me at the door of the coop each evening. I lost Lil' Bit to a hawk more than a year ago. Now one of my other dark brahma hens is showing signs of a vision problem. There are three steps from the pop door of the brahma coop to the ground. This hen, Bella, sorta reaches with her foot before stepping through the door and most of the time stumbles out anyhow. Now just like Lil' Bit she has started waiting for me just outside the coop each evening. I think she's going blind. DH says she's just spoiled. I know there are other BYCers that have partially blind chickens from hatch. Anyone have a chicken that went blind later on in life? If so, what were your first clues?
