Thick Yellow Film on her eye?

    I have a girl with an eye problem. Her eye is watery and weaping a lot and dripping all over her feathers. There is a thick yellow "FILM" over her eye. I have tried to dislodge it with a moist Q-tip and flushing it with saline. But nothing is working. She is eating well and is still laying but her eye is quite swollen. I will try to get a couple pictures and post them.
    Any ideas/advice?

    Looks like a respitory illness called Coryza. Do a search on it as it spreads and their is a lot of information to read. You can massage the puss, that's what chicken puss looks like out of her eye and put her on a cattle med called Tylan 50. However you are only treating the symptoms not the true cause.
