    Hello everyone, my name is Travis. I have 4a chicken's total. 2 banty roosters & hens. I have a question, one of my roosters was gave to me and when I got him 5 months ago he was blind in one eye cause of the others in the flock picking on him. Well sometimes he holds that eye closed for a little while "about a day", but most of the time it stays open and just looks like he has a cataract, but yesterday and today he has held it closed and I wiped it and it had like an eye booger in it....should I try to treat it with anything or just let it be? Thank you, Travis Fox.
