    Hello,
    We have recently got our first backyard chooks - 2 buff orpington hens. I have just noticed that one of them has a swollen red lump under her eye near the beak and her eye on this side looks a bit gluey. Please refer to the pics. Does anyone know what this could be and whether it can be treated?
    Thanks in advance!

    @cococordelia , welcome to BYC!

    What does the bump feel like? Liquid, soft cheese or hard cheese?
