Has it always been there?  I have a rooster that hatched with a wart on his eye lid, but much smaller.

Looks like fowl pox.

You can usually find the Vetericyn gel at Tractor Supply.

 

Most important is to make sure it is eating and drinking.

It's eating and drinking fine. Doesn't act like it bothers him/her.

This is good!

 

If it is Fowl pox, it usually takes 2-3 weeks to go away.

Keep watch of it to make sure it doesn't become infected. If it does you can treat with something like Vetericyn eye gel or Terramycin ointment which you can apply twice a day.
