The area around the eye is swollen and there is nasal drainage, so it could be a respiratory infection such as mycoplasma (MG) or coryza. This is contagious and can make carriers of your flock, even if you treat it. A vet in the UK would probably have to prescribe antibiotics such as Tylan, oxytetracycline, or erythromycin. These diseases can come back again later. Here is a link to read about these and other common diseases: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
