    Gosh, it looks the same to me, but I'm sure in "real life" you are seeing much more detail! I'm glad she's doing better! You're a good chicken momma!

    It never got any worse, but didn't get better....he was an extra roo, so I sold him for the stew pot when he was maybe 15 weeks.

    I wonder if yours just got a little poke in the eye or something, and the inflammation sort of caused it?
