  1. I had a chicky that was believed to have sight when she hatched but by 12 weeks I realised she was blind. Like you I don't know to what degree. She was free to roam with the others. I added different sounding bells so she could hear the different dispensers being used by other chickens and always kept the layout exactly the same as best I could. I made sure there where no dead ends where she could get stuck. She was able to get up on the perch her self but needed to be placed in the hen house. I think it is possible for them to have a good life and be blind. I saw a YouTube video of a guy that would take his blind hen out eat day and would find bugs and let it peck at some grass. I just think that it will depend on your particular hens. I had no problems until I tried to introduce POL girls that had been reared by someone else. The new girl who landed at the bottom of the pecking order would bully her so she ended up having to have her own sections within the run.
