    My silkie has one red eyelid. Right above the eye is turning red and seems a little puffy.

    The other eye is fine. No red coloring.

    There is no other noticeable problems. She/he is eating drinking and pooping just fine.
    There does not appear to be any injury.


    Do you think she is sick or is it normal maturing color?

    This is my 1st silkie.

    I think that she may just have been pecked by another chicken. She should be fine.[​IMG] It may also be normal coloring.
