    My husbands prize cockrel has suddenly gone blind. His father did this early this summer then declined rapidly with neurological symptoms. None of the other birds with him got sick and that was 6 months ago so we hoped the old guy had a stroke or something. Now his son at 7 months is suddenly blind.

    My husband is going to be devastated. I'm just sick to my stomach thinking to having to tell him. He was going to use this roo to rebuild his flock f pure bred kentucky specks. God I wish this hadn't happened for the roos sake and my DH.
