    One of my hens has gone broody, she has been sitting on some plastic eggs for a while now. She comes out for food and water and some times one of my other hen will peck at her and chase her. I went to collect some eggs and noticed that she had one eye open and the other eye closed. I didnt know it was normal what she was doing or if it was from been pecked ( there was no mark, or swollen it looked normal) or could it be an infection?
