After a devastating raccoon attack that took 12 hens, my trusty Rooster and a pullet, I fear one of my injured hens hanging on for dear life is blinded. What is behind the lids of a chicken? Just the eye ball or other stuff?

One of her eyes is still closed tight but the other is open and is oozing whitish fleshy yuck. Is her eye gone? She still has a ton of swelling, could it be just the swollen tissue around the eye?

Anyone have any knowledge they can share?

Sad News. She didn't survive her injuries. She put up a valiant effort and we did everything we could to keep her going, but I found her barely breathing this morning, lying on underneath the roosting bar.
