    My black sex link hen has been walking around with one closed eye. When I stretch the eye open, there doesn't appear to be any damage or inflammation. Should I worry now or later???

    I would just go ahead and wash the eye with saline eye wash, and terramycin eye ointment..

    she could have an injury you just can't see.

    hopefully this will take care of it.
    just watch for any other symptoms.
