    It all started when i notice the chicken had a bubbly water substance in her eyes.

    we decided to take her to the vet turn out she had a seed ( from the food her previous owner gave her ), we got the seed out and she went blind in her left eye due to it.
    her face we were giving medicine for her eyes which we have been using and both of her eyes are now REALLY puffy and it doesn't seem to be going down.
    mum doesn't think the vet can do much more.

    Not sure how a chicken can get a seed stuck in their eye, but when my chicken had a respiratory infection her eyes poofed up and little air bubbles were forming in the corner. Maybe she has a respiratory infection but had a seed that was doing no harm to her? Hopefully she heals!

    Also vets don't have very much experience with animals other than cats/dogs, so if you are that desperate to save her you will have to take her to an avian vet which is a bit hard on the wallet!
