    She has scissor beak something fierce, but she is eating and drinking and thriving perfectly fine. Problem is, when she was fresh in the incubator, her buddies pecked her eye. Doesnt seem like she can see out of it, and the top lid is mostly gone, but there is a kaper sized bump above it. What can i do if anything? im ok with a one eyed scissor-beaked hen, but im worried its infected with the swelling.
