    one of my chickens seem to have a white layer covering its eyes. sometimes there are little white specks on her eyes too. i have cleaned it with warm salt water and it seemed to get better. just yesterday it started opening her eyes but she still can't see anything and keeps hitting other things[​IMG]. also she refuses to eat anything and doesn't really drink much either but she is always sleeping. i don't know what to do please help me[​IMG]
