    Can you please post a pic, we could give you a better idea. Often white looking blisters on the face, eyelids and on exposed skin can be caused by Fowl Pox, which is carried by Mosquitoes....... but there are other possibilities also....

    I have a BR hen who I adopted and she has a bubble just behind her left eye. It has done nothing it's the same color as her face/comb/wattles. I have had her for about 3 months now and it hasn't changed shape or color. She eats well, lays well I have no idea what it is. No sneezing or shaking of head, idk if she had that all her life or not. The people I got her from hadn't noticed it, I guess. They seemed surprised when I asked them about it. I hope it is benign like my hens! Good luck!
