    I have a 2 month old Isa Brown Hen who keeps closing one eye. It also keeps moving its tail and the feathers are all messed up but I can see that my chicken is still cleaning them with it beak.The chicken had the same problem with its eye a week ago but the chicken just went back to normal. What do I do? Is this normal? Im getting very worried, please HELP......

    She might have something in her eye, flush it with saline solution. Your hen might be preening her feathers which is normal, but closely inspect her for lice and mites just in case.
