Hello, i have 8 hens that are 3 and a half years old. I noticed a couple days ago that my Easter Egger has a bump on her eye, on the top half there’s a bump the same color as her face, and her eye is still open. The bump used to be smaller but it’s gotten larger which concerns me. I’m pretty sure she can see out of it. She does not appear to be in any pain and is acting as she usually does. I can’t attach a picture right now but does anyone have any idea what’s going on? A couple days ago i got a tick off of one of the other hens faces, and i’ve been letting them roam farther out recently. Could this be an infection from a tick or something? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Could be. Have you touched it? Does it feel hot, hard, or squishy? How big is it relative to her eyelid?
She wouldn’t stop moving, sorry for the blurry pics. It feels squishy and not hot. She didn’t seem to react to it being touched, but she was squirming around a lot so it was hard to tell. It appears that there are those “feather hairs” growing on it, you know the ones that grow on their face normally? I don’t know how to describe it, but they’re short feathers that grow on their faces.

I can't say I've ever seen that before. I wonder if they can get warts? Does the red part around her eye seem swollen to you? It looks swollen in the pic.
