Chicken Eye Sight

Chickens see in tetra-chromatic (they can see red, blue and green light as well as ultraviolet light). They can also see 300 degrees. They see more colors and shades than humans.

They have mono-vision – the left eye is far sighted and the right eye is near sighted. They use their left eye to watch for predators and their right eye to find food.

They have poor night vision and their eyes are super sensitive to bright light.
