    I can't find anything on the Web that's close, so I'm hoping someone here has seen this before.

    I know of something about a worm in the eye...I am not certain about under the eye though! I hope someone can help soon!

    Does it feel hard? Or squishy?

    Does it hurt her when you touch it?

    I am wondering if maybe it is a cyst?

    I it's hard to the touch. She doesn't like me messing with it. I'm still clueless! Looks the same today.

    Although a cyst, a peck wound, or an insect bite could be the cause, many times swelling of the face with a watery eye can be a respiratory disease such as MG. It can be treated with Tylan 50 injectable given orally or as a shot. MG is infectious and will make carriers of birds for life.

    Could MG be possible even if there are no other signs? She has no respiratory problems. Only a teary eye from the swelling of this lump. I only have 3 hens. She's inside by herself right now while I keep an eye on her.
