Hey y’all. I’m not really sure what happened but I have a hen that can’t see out of one of her eyes. It’s crusted over with something. I don’t know if she got pecked by another chicken or injured it while out free ranging. Picture attached, has anyone had experience with something like this?! What do I do?

Do any other chickens have lesions on their combs, wattles, or face ? It looks like a severe fowl pox outbreak. I would apply ophthalmic or other antibiotic ointment to moisten the scabs. If it is fowl pox, it's a virus which will have to run its course.
I have never heard of this, but we are also new to having chickens. I’ll have to look at the rest of the flock. Thank you!!
