    Maybe she got pecked or something got in it. Is it red, swollen, watery, crusty, etc? I had a hen who was broody and refused to leave her nest. Another bird wanted said nest and pecked her trying to kick her off, ending up getting her good in the eye. It was red and swollen and watery, as well as half-open so I took her inside and put in 1 drop of store-brand saline eyedrops-regular ones. I did this for about 1 and 1/2 weeks straight and eventually, her eye improved. Neosporin and VetRX also helped aid her, as well. I wouldn't be too concerned, regardless of whether it is her eye or simply the lid, just watch out and make sure it doesn't worsen.
