    Not sure whats going on. I picked it up locally but I did not inspect the hen thoroughly. The next day when I was feeding them in the chicken coop, I noticed something wrong with her eye, and drainage from her beak. Can some help with diagnosis and treatment?

    mycoplama or coryza or any cold sickness. Many people on this forum will suggest will recommended to cull it because they will be life carriers and there is no cure but you can treat it with teramycin la120 injection ,5ml cc below the eye inside the sinus or you can treat it with tylon. I personally don t cull rather treat it. good luck

    Does it affect egg production and the quality of the eggs?

    Not treating it will affect egg production if it doesn't clear up on it's own.
