Mine had respiratory illness with these symptoms, although i don't know 100% treatment. I have one hen who lived through it, and one who got better, but then died of it. So it should be caught as soon as possible. I used VetRX in water and rubbed on tye hen. It is like Vicks for chickens, in my opinion. tongue.png
Although that wasn't a 100% cure...

I have seen this before in several of my chickens.

 

For most of them, it has just gone away and seems to be an allergic reaction. However, two of them had a respiratory infection which I had to get veterinary treatment for. They are doing splendid now and I haven't seen the bubbling.

 

Oddly enough, though, most of the birds I've had who got this never had any respiratory problems, and, as I said, it always went away.

 

If you can, I would get her checked out by a vet just in case. ;)

I would separate her so you can treat her.

Could be a respiratory infection like MG (mycoplasma gallisepticum). Generally antibiotics (Tylan Soluble Powder or Oxytetracycline) is needed to treat the infection.  Tylan dosage is 1 tsp per gallon of water for 3-5 days. Oxytetracycline dosage varies with whichever brand you choose, so you will have to search for the dosage. Flush the eye with saline and apply Terramycin eye ointment to the eye a couple of times a day.

 

You state that you just got some new chickens a couple of days ago, if so are these new chickens quarantined in a separate area from any existing flock that you may have?
