    My chicken, Henretta, had a growth on her eye and because she is very timid, we could not get a close look at it. After about a month it fell of and we thought the problem was solved. When i went out to feed her one day, i saw that she had no eye left! it was completely hollow. She gets around great but sleeps more than any one of our chickens. What do you think happened to her eye? is it a disease? Will it affect the other chickens?

    Are you sure the growth fell off? I was thinking maybe another chicken maybe thought it was something to eat and picked it off with the eye going with the growth. Could that have happened?

    it did fall off because we knew what it looked like. and when we saw that it was gone, we saw it on the ground.
