    Someone gave me a chicken and one eye looks like this. Actually looks like it's getting worse. Anyone have any idea what it could be? She seems fine other wise. She's about 4 months old .

    I don't know. Maybe you could do warm compresses on it. I guess it could be a blocked tear duct. I've had a few with eye problems this year and I think mine are mosquito related.
