    I have a chick that now has a bump above her eye and only on one side. She is seperatred from her sisters cause we don't know what is wrong. Has anyone seen this or know what it might be.

    If it is swollen tissue around the eye it may be a respiratory disease such as mycoplasma or coryza that causes sinus swelling. Here are some common ones: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ps044
