about 4-5 o'clock on the eye

How is the other eye? Sometimes eye foam can be from a respiratory disease such as mycoplasma (MG,) but it could also be from pecking or very cold temperatures. I have one particular hen who gets them in her eyes on very cold mornings, then it is gone in a few hours. She doesn't have any respiratory disease. If you hear noisy breathing, nasal drainage, or especially swelling around the eye, you may want to separate her and treat her with antibiotics such as Tylan, oxytetracycline, or Gallimycin.

It could be a very slight eye infection. If it were my hen, I'd use some antibiotic eye drops or ointment.

 

I have a very old hen who has a benign tumor over one eye. It puts pressure on her eye sometimes causing bubbles like we see on your hen.

There could also be something in her eye. I've only had one chicken get bubbles in its eye, a fairly young chick. When I discovered it, it seriously freaked me out. Then I noticed something sticking up out of the corner of its eye. I gently removed the debris (a piece of feed) and the bubbles went away pretty quickly. I don't know how it got there, if it was kicked in or if it somehow traveled through the nasal cavity, but it had obviously been there for a bit (smelled awful). I felt horrible!

Good luck, I hope you get it sorted out!
