silkier with bad eye

Welcome to BYC. Look for any signs of a pecking injury to her eye. Vetericyn Eye Gel, Terramycin Eye Ointment, or plain Neosporin ointment can be used in the eye to help treat for an infection. The Vetericyn or plain saline would be good just to clean it. Swollen eyes can sometimes be a sign of a respiratory disease, especially if there is runny nose, watery or gunky eyes, sneezing, or gasping. It sounds like she is just getting bullied, so I would try to cage her inside the coop with her own food and water. Give her a little chopped egg or tuna daily with some vitamins and probiotics, along with her usual feed, to help her gain some weight. Posting a picture of her sore eye may be helpful.
