    My little black frizzle Penny, has a lazy eye. It has gotten a bit better since we got her, but she mostly has just one eye mostly closed or even all the way? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    I had a LF Cochin with a "lazy eye". It looked droopy like she couldn't open it all the way. She was actually blind in that eye. I could wave my hand on the good side and she'd react, nothing from the off side. Unfortunately she was the first to be snatched up by a predator. Just keep and eye (pun totally intended) on your special one and she'll likely be fine. Good luck :)

    I think i have a new Hampshire red that has a lazy eye. It opens and then kind of half shuts. Her other one is just fine. She's still eating and drinking and laying egg's. Just happened to look the subject up to see if there were any treatments or anything.
