do you think it could be Mareks at all? Does the fuzziness around her good eye mean anything?In a few of the pictures of her left eye, the outline of the pupil looks fuzzy and the color is faded around the rim. The dilated pupil is unusual because there doesn’t seem to be any cloudiness as a cataract would have. That could be due to a head injury or nerve damage, but I am only guessing.
I’m afraid she may be going blind in that eye now. I don’t see cataracts, but she acts as if she can’t see on that side. I hope it’s not something like Mareks. I have another blind hen that I’ve raised, maybe they could live together.From what you described of her injuries I would assume she was attacked and her eye issue is probably related to these injuries to her head.
There might be some pressure on the nerve due to swelling of tissue, or the nerve itself could be injured. Only time will tell as the swelling of the injured tissue will begin to subside after 4-5 days and the reactiveness of the pupil should gradually improve.
If not, the damage to the nerve might be permanent.
In your honest opinion, do you think she could have ocular Mareks? I’m going to get her tested for Mareks in general, but I just want to know your opinion about it. What seems abnormal about her left eye? Is she showing typical Mareks?The film over the top of her left eye is interesting, but both eyes definitely appear abnormal. The right eye appears fixed and dilated, probably due to a head injury. Please let us know how she gets along, and I hope that she does recover.
