    I have a 2yo EE hen that had been isolating herself from the group for a few weeks. Tonight I noticed one of her eyes is funky but the other is perfectly fine. I just saw something that said it could be Mareks?? I have 5 other chickens she's been with since day 1 and 13 new chickens that have been in the coop for 6 weeks. Everyone else seems fine. She seems fine health wise - she's just alone and I was attributing that to getting picked on (I've seen the roo on her and another hen pecking at her head :( ) She's always walked a little odd like her vision was never 100% in that eye as well. Please tell me this isn't Mareks and that it could be just cataracts or a vision problem?? (These are the best pics I could get tonight) [​IMG]

    Than you so much for the help, that is a very helpful document!! I have a very hard time believing it's Mareks as she's 2 and has no other symptoms, nor do any other chickens. I guess my best bet is a visit to the chicken vet for some difinitive answers.
