    My chicken was just hit in the face with a mouse traps. It hurt her eye. She won't open it. It doesn't seem to be bloody or anything. She won't move or drink or eat. When I can get her to open her eye, it is only for a bit and it is real red. I have her quarantined from my other hens. Is there anything else I can do?
    I feel horrible for not moving the traps before I let them out of the coop.

    Nothing you can do at this point, just let her rest, it will heal up, chickens are good at it.
