    Is it brown or does it have blood in it making it look brown? Does he have any signs of injury?

    Pictures would definitely help.

    Do you have any saline solution on hand? I would start by trying to wash her eye out if there is no visible signs of an injury, but even then it wouldn't hurt anything.

    Could be it got poked on something or someone pecked her in the eye. Make sure nothing is stuck in her eye if you can force it open and get a small light to look in up close.

    If it's actually dilated it could be a sign of a head injury- check to see if it's a dilated pupil rather than something else.
