    Has anyone seen anything like this and what should we do..we are first time chicken owners and we want to keep them healthy.
    The little scratch on the far right side of her eye has cleared up..we are concerned about the film / eyelid skin that is covering her eye..

    Go to your local boots the chemist and buy a tube of golden eye. Its used for people but everytime my chickens get sore eyes I rub a little cream on it twice a day and it really seems to work very quickly. If you can, pull her eyelid back and run the cream along just inside and rub a little on the outside too. You should find her eye clears up well. Best of luck.
