Hi Whitebarn

Do you have any other hens? If so then I really think you should get her checked out by a vet :) She could have a nasty infection that may spread to the other birds if not treated with antibiotics asap :)

Have you tried bathing her eyes with warm water doe that help at all?


Oh and can you please turn your caps lock off,  thanks


Sarah :)
