Hello, We have a small flock of 10 hens. Today I found this 6 month old in the corner of the coop and when I approached her I saw that she didn't looks so good. Both of her eyes are swollen shut. I took two pictures. Can anyone identify what this might be? Thank you!

It looks like a chicken or other creature attacked her. She could have possibly gotten caught on something as well but the damage looks more to be like bullying. Is she a new to the flock? Was a new rooster introduced? Anything new happen (example- new coop, run, lost a chicken, etc)? I would try to take a look at her eyes to see if they are damaged as well. Hope you figure everything out and she is alright.
