    have a Rhode Island Red that has one eye closed. There is no oozing, scratches, redness or swelling. When I open the lids her eye is a cloudy white color. Other than that she seems fine. Any suggestions on what this is or how to fix it? Thanks in advance!

    She may have been pecked, you can try veterycin ophthalmic gel. I had a pullet that had this problem and it resolved in about 3 days.
