Just picked up this chicken and chicks from someone who could not look after them this morning. Do you think mum might have Mareks? Or could the irregular eye be caused by something else? Otherwise she and the chicks seem to be in good health and are eating/drinking well. I have booked a vet appointment and have set up a quarantine perimeter between the new arrivals and my current chooks. Hoping that its not Mareks :hmm

How is the hen seeing? Is she pecking at feed or grass and hitting it? Unfortunately, it looks like some pictures of ocular Mareks.
Thanks for your reply. As far as I can tell she can see alright. She is pecking at grass and food in the tray with no trouble. She also seems to notice if I look out the window at them (I have situated their quarantine area just out the back of my house so I can keep an eye on them).
