    Hi there~

    I bought a new rooster and he is currently in quarantine. I noticed that the whites of his eyes (the sclera) is yellow. I googled this but cannot find any information if it's abnormal. There is no swelling or discharge at all. He doesn't act sick and eats/drinks well. I'm just wondering if he has some sort of jaundice...if that's even possible in chickens?

    Thank you!

    Tina :)
