    Did someone call and help you?

    If not, can you tell us more about your chicken? Age, type, conditions, any other symptoms?

    Hope she's ok. [​IMG]

    What you can do is flush saline solution {contact lens cleaner} into the eye. You may have to pry the eye open. If the eye will not open than try placing a warm cloth onto eye until the eye opens. After that apply terramycin ointment into the eye. You can get this product at the feed store or vets office. Repeat these steps several times a day. Hopefully this will solve your problem.
