What about her face is unusual? Her beak? Her nostrils, or are you seeing swelling or a crooked beak? Does she seem to see well?

Hi Eggcessive, thank you for such quick response. I didn't see any broken beak or swallow face. She looks well during the day. Here is another picture of her left side. I just hope not another chicken peck her to injure her nose. :(

She looks normal, perhaps a small loss of tissue to her right nare. It doesn't look infected or anything swollen. I don't think I'd worry about it unless you see blood, or discharge, or bloody discharge. 🙂

Hi
Her comb seems to come down over her nostrol on the left side. make sure that it is open for breathing. Her beak might be very slightly overgrown on top. Make sure her beak appears straight from the font, since they can be crooked or cross beak. I am not an expert on these things, so I will post a link about beaks:

Thank you for the information. I will check her peak tomorrow. It is a little cooky not completely straight. But I will double check tomorrow. Thanks again.

Hi Mykamom, thank you so much for quick response. There is no discharge or blood. But I will keep eye on her. Also I saw a little bit water by her nose like running nose on the other hen. Then I came out to check her again in an hour, the running nose is gone. Should I be concerned? Thanks

If the birds are showing signs of respiratory distress, you need to consult a vet. There ARE over the counter meds for poultry, such as broad spectrum antibiotics. It could just be a one off, but I would absolutely watch for more. If it happens again, check the health forum on what to do. I haven't experienced any disease outbreaks.
