    Hi I'm very new to chicken owning. This past weekend I was checking on my flock and I found one of my hens had something above her eye at first I thought that she just got in a fight. But then I looked again and saw there was foam in her eye too. However the foam has started to go away. I just am sacred that she is sick and don't know what it is. Please help!

    p.s. How do you post pictures?
