    One of my girls had her eye shut last night. I grabbed her and her eyelids were stuck together. I started to peel them apart and it was just black inside. It startled me and I set her down. Is that just her pupil or did she lose her eye? It is so wierd and well eeewwwweeey.

    Is it her eyelid.. They have an eyelid in there eye that when there is an infection, or if there is an injury will cover the eye to protect it..

    Is the chicken showing any signs of being sick? If not maybe it just got hurt and could be healing. You can use saline solution to clean it and gen-tel gel to lubricate it ( you can get this at any drug store)
