    Looks as if one of my younger birds has gotten her eye pecked at by one of my older hens. Keeps it closed except when eating and looks like her eyelids are covering the eye somewhat. But I am not sure if this happened or what happened, any suggestons?

    Right now all I can suggest is to flush the eye with saline solution. She could have a particle of dust in there that is irritating the eye. She could have been pecked.. it's hard to say.

    by eyelids, do you mean their inner eyelids?
