    Hello,
    I have a RIR hen whos eye I noticed was swollen today upon further inspection I noticed in the swollen eye there is a white bubble of sorts. Her other eye is not swollen nor does it have the white like her swollen eye. What is it and what do I do to treat it. She is healthy otherwise as far as eating, drinking, pooping, and beghavior wise is also normal.

    Vasaline on an eye? Are you sure that is safe? I don't think so.

    To upload a pic you hit the pic icon at the top of the message box you write your message in. Then you go into your albums and pick the one you want and it will add a link and you then hit the reply button. I went to the vet an she perscribed me medicine and her eye is already back to normal. She did have an eye infection as said by runt325.
