    I am trying to decide if my chicken is in fact vision impaired. Please tell me what symptoms you have noticed your vision impaired chicken shows.

    Thanks,
    Michelle

    sometimes they cry peep loud. Look to see if its got cloudy eyes. Peck at air when they cant see. Put its head in the water for a drink and the same with food and if they gobble it up then chances they are blind. I move my finger around and they most of the time follow it but blind they dont.
