So I used to have a young cockerel I got from some chicken people down the road. He unfortunately died a warriors death. I went to see the same people again because I liked everything about the the one I had .

I ended up with a rooster around two years old he had lost his place in the pecking order to a younger rooster. He’s got a messed up eye to show for. I was told it had been treated with antibiotics and allowed to heal. I’m wondering what y’all think is going on. He’s very active and I think has some sight on his bad side.

If you could get a few more up-close pictures, that may be helpful.

From what I can see in the picture, there looks to be some opacity to the eye, correct?

Subsequent to an injury my first thoughts would be an anterior lens luxation, but a trauma created cataract could also be possible. Maybe others will have additional thoughts.
