chicken with sagging eyelidgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
I recently received several Rhode Island Red hens to add to my backyard flock. Yesterday I noticed that one of them has a sagging lower eyelid (only on one side). Upon close inspection, it appears that she has a blister of some sort along the inner eyelid, and it is weighing the lid down. Her eye is clear & bright with no discharge or crust. There is no swelling other than the blister. She is eating/drinking/laying normally. Should I be concerned? Any idea what might cause this?

Dont know alot about chickens but until it pops I would keep her seperated. maybe use some terimicine eye ointment on it[ feed stores carry it].
