    I noticed my polish hen Rebel had a leaky eye the other day. It's more swollen now. Does she have a infection or a sliver?

    ETA: other eye looks fine. My other hens are all good as well.

    I have some Polish and I've learnt that that can happen quite often. It might be the crest feathers which are aggravating the eye. If it is you can tie the crest back in a ponytail! Good luck![​IMG]
