You can see the difference in size of the pupil & the iris color. It is even more distinct in person. The blind eye is the larger pupil. Is this ocular Marek's? Her eye went totally blind suddenly. Help anyone, I am worried!

Hmmm... Doesn't look like the usual Marek's eye. -Kathy

Is it possible do you think Kathy? Do you have experience with this?
I read a change in iris color & blindness are symptoms of ocular Marek's. I never knew about this disease until this happened to my girl.
I can't find any other info why the iris color would change along with sudden blindness.

I have a young Speckled Sussex pullet with something similar. Did your bird have Ocular Mareks?
