    I'll get a picture up as soon as I can. Her right eye is sealed shut and her other eye seems inflamed. This also seems to be happening to my Americauna, but it's only her right eye. She's become really drowsy too. Could she have an eye infection? Help is appreciated!

    Yes, post pic when able. If another hen is becoming affected too I would seperate these two from any others. Can you take warm water and get the eye open? I hope someone else can come up with something better for you. Newcastle, fowl pox, vit. A deficiencies can cause eye issues. So sorry you are having this trouble. You may need to get them on antibiotics asap.
