    Hello,

    I have just discovered my ISA Brown hen had one of her eyes shut. It has a bit of blood marks on it, and it looks a little swollen. I can't really send a photo, but will you be able to know what is wrong anyway?

    I think she is about 3 years old, and she has gone through other problems before. She usually hangs out on the roost, so every once and a while I will go and bring her down to eat or drink. This eye-thing that is going on, has never happened to any other chicken that I own.

    Please write back!!

    Thanks!

    Does the eye have peck marks on it? Is it swollen from a respiratory infection. You said shehad other problems before. Without a picture or more info, it would be hard to help you.
