    It looks like she got pecked in the corner of her eye. But over the last two days it looks like it is getting bigger. Are the chicks pecking her there now? What can I put on her eye? SHould I seperate them?

    yes you should separate her until her eye heals. you can keep her in a dog crate in the coop so she won't get lonely, but she needs to be safe from the others until she heals. flush out her eye with some cool/warm water, she should do fine in a few days
