    We got a few chickens around a week or so ago and one of the chicken has developed a weird ball near it's eye. Any ideas of what it is?

    Welcome to BYC.
    Looks like it may have something in it eye?
    Or an injury...such as being pecked?

    You can tell something is "wrong" with the eye but it is kinda hard to tell with the blurry pictures.

    Have you tried flushing the eye out?

    She has some kind of growth, I don't believe it's a pecking injury. It would really be best if a vet saw her. Maybe it needs to be drained, or removed. It is encroaching
    on her eye.
