    I was just out with my girls letting the free range and I noticed that one of the girls have foam bubbling out of her eye. I caught her and there has been no cough, runny nose or unusual behavior. She's eating and drinking fine also. I have eight other girls and they all are fine. Any idea why she would have a foamy substance coming out of her eye? Thanks

    It could be that she has something lodged in there that the body is trying to flush out, or it could be the start of a disease. You are going to need to monitor your flock closely to rule out the possibility of a disease.
