How is it today? Any other symptoms?

I wonder if it's just a pecking injury. It doesntlook too serious. I think I'd just watch it to make sure it doesn't get worse.

Pretty hen!!!

Hi!! Thank you for your input. You are probably right I noticed it on Monday when I posted this. This one hen that can be aggressive so that may very well be. It hasn't grown in size thankfully. I bought some probitic supplement powder that I've been putting in there feed so I hoping that will boost there immune system and speed recovery. :) And yes she is so cute thank you for the compliment đź’—

It might possibly be fowl pox, but if it hasn't gotten morse or if more bumps haven't appeared, it's probably not pox.

My hens had dry pox, and they had bumps that turned black all over their face, comb, and wattles. It cleared up on its own after a few weeks. Someone described dry fowl pox in chickens as being like chicken pox in humans.... if that makes sense.

Wet pox gets in their throats and mouths and other areas. It can cause respiratory symptoms. This eye bump isn't that, thankfully.
