I don't think your chicken has an eye problem,, It looks more like ear to me..
for starters, I would go with something ingested instead of putting anything into eye for now..
some kind of inflamitory dosage..
the live trap was set off , but nothing inside.. I half expected that if it is a raccoon.. My large coon trap is at the BiL .. this trap is a medium, and might be too small for a good sized coon..
I forgot to close all the coops last night.. so far I found no piles of feathers..
the penned up peahen has laid no more eggs.. I think I will snatch the two she laid and put them into the bator.. she doesn't sit on them.. I will give her until tonight, and if she lays no egg I will set her free and watch her for a future nest..
have to leave in a short while to ride with Gramma to her Dr appointment.. she is not sick.. just a check-up and draw some blood..
ETA: check the chicken's wisdom teeth.. might be infected and causing the swelling..
