    What is this on my chickens face??

    Is this something I should be treating a special way?? I have no idea what this is but it wasn’t there yesterday? It looks like she was jabbed in the face? Is that all it is? I know there was some serious fighting over the roost last night, could another beak do this? Thanks for your help!

    Sick hen. Mucus in mouth and partially swollen face

    One of my hens has some sort of slime or mucus like discharge in her mouth. She's also keeping her left eye closed, and it seems like her head, or the area around her eye, is a little swollen. I don't think she can open her left eye. I just noticed this tonight. What can I do?
