    I am so sorry about your hen. I do not know what is wrong with her, but I am going to bump this post so that maybe someone this evening can give you more info. Hope she heals soon.

    Sorry! Bump! [​IMG] Good luck with her! Btw! In case it is contagious (unless you haven't already) I would separate her from the other birds.

    Is it foamy or is it fleshy? I can't really tell from the pic.

    I can't see any pox lesions there. Looks like some type of respiratory infection. Bubbly eyes often go along with them.
