    We have a pullet about 6 weeks old and we noticed one of her eyes was half closed. When we looked at it further it looked like a white string was in it and hanging out. When we pulled on it, it appears to be attached to the eyeball. For now we trimmed it, but there is no other sign of problems. Any idea? We trimmed it, but she still keeps her eye half closed.
