    Hello and welcome to BYC [​IMG] Have you checked her for mites/lice? Or something in her eye that's bothering her. I know that could be the cause, but it may be something more serious. I think you should repost this question in the Emergencies / Diseases / Injuries and Cures. See what the more experienced members say. Good luck!
