    She may have debris in her eye in which case you could flush her eye liberally with saline solution and put a little neosporin in it for a few days and see if it clears up/heal. If it doesnt, I'd suspect the onset of a respiratory disease; possibly Coryza or Mycoplasma Gallisepticum, maybe Infectious Bronchitis. Here's a link to respiratory diseases in poultry:

    I recommend that you seperate her from other birds.

    She is an inside chicken let out weather permitting. She doesn't have watery eyes, watery nostrils or labored breathing.

    Keep in mind that the diseases I mentioned have various symptoms...mild to wild, depending on the strain.

    See if yours does :)

    I would try the saline solution and neosporin first.
