    Hi everyone - New too BYC and chickens! We have recently bought 4 bantams as family additions - 2 Orpingtons and 2 Japanese, We discovered one was almost blind but rather than return her too an almost sure sticky end we decided to see how she got on! She quickly sorted food and drinking positions, roosting etc and ambles about with her best friend. she clearly has some sight as she knows where big things are it's just the search for treats so she gets special service. look forward to learning from all you experienced chookers.[​IMG]

    Sounds like she is doing fine. No reason to cull her. What a pretty girl.
