    It looks like she has a small wound (?) possibly pecked on the corner. But I also see bubbles in the eye as well?

    Flush the eye with some saline and apply some Vetericyn eye gel or Terramycin eye ointment in the eye.

    Bubbles/foamy eyes can be an indication of a respiratory illness like Mycoplasma G., but pecking wounds can cause bacterial infections. Watch her for any other symptoms like coughing, wheezing, sneezing and mucous from the nose.
