    HI Jessalynn,

    Click on the Index above and then click on Frequently asked questions for how to post pictures. Then add the picture to your current thread so we can see what is going on with your hen. I am sure someone will be able to offer some help.

    If you have trouble posting a pic, PM me and I will walk you thorough it.

    Quote:You are welcome. I don't know what to say about the eye, it does look very odd. Perhaps someone else will have an answer or remedy. You took very good pictures of the problem. Someone will know.

    Corzya?

    Don't think so because there's no drainage or anything.It's just completly darkened and that's it.SOOO FRUSTRATING!!!​

    Still Confused what could have caused her to go blind in that eye:barnie She's behaving normal and still eating and drinking well.There's no other symptoms.I still have her seperated from the others just incase.Should I put her back in with the others or still seperate her?
