I have a new hen, she is two years old, a Black Maran, she has been here a week. She is in isolation. I noticed this bump on her eye. It feels kind of firm, when I pushed on it nothing came out. She is not eating or drinking much, seems somewhat lethargic. SHe is from a NPIP certified flock. I have her on layer crumbles, pine shavings and gave her oatmeal with DE, which she ate ok. She has not laid since she's been here but I feel no egg in her. There is no wheezing, sneezing, odor or any mucus I can see at all. I did worm her yesterday with Ivermectin Pour On. She ate scrambled egg today and some apple. Not sure if the eye swelling could be a peck wound or infection. Any advice would be appreciated. Included are photos of droppings and her eye. Thanks.
