    this morning I noticed that my bantam Wyandotte pullet had an odd looking eye. Any suggestions on what to do? [​IMG]

    nothing coming from her eye, i think she can see out of it, just gave them treats,food, and water and she took all of it, and I'm not absolutely sure how old she is but I would guess 6-7 months she has been laying eggs pretty often. I haven't noticed any abnormal behaviors or symptoms.

    It's as if her eye lids are half way closed because the eye its self looks ok

    It looks like a lazy eye or some dust or something is in it or she got picked in her eye.

    It does possibly look a little swollen. You could try flushing the eye with saline and see if there is any gunk in there, remove it with a qtip. After you flush it you put some Vetericyn eye gel or Terramycin eye ointment in the eyes and see if that helps.
