We got a silkie pullet from a friend last April (or so) and since she could not see because of her overly fluffy head, we trimmed the feathers around her eyes. But she seems to have problems with depth perception. Ex. If you hold a treat in your hand, she will peck for it, but fall short by a few inches as if she thinks it is closer to her than it is. Her eyes might be a little cloudy, but it's hard to tell because her eyes are so dark. In addition, we noticed that she was keeping her eyes shut most of the time before we trimmed her feathers. Maybe her eyes are underdeveloped?
