    Could be her eye....sounds like some kind of infection...you'll have to get close enough to her to really look and see if there is an injury to the face or eye....neosporin if there is an open wound..the kind with NO painkiller....If it looks like an eye infection, you'll have to do a search for eye infection I don't know mucsh about that. Let us know... [​IMG]

    Could be anything, parasite, peck from another chicken, I even read here where someone's chicken had a swollen face from a pellet gun attack! Is she eating? How's her poop? I would thoroughly clean the face..she won't like that...and put neosporin all over it..non painkiller kind....and keep her away from other hens, they may peck at her
