    My Rhode hen has an eye problem, left eye has some mucus like substance coming from it, actually looks sort of 'bubbly' if you've ever seen the substance a 'spittle bug' produces it looks like that, she scratches it and rubs it on her side when it comes up in her eye.

    Thank you everyone for your responses, I'm removing the bird from my coup and taking care of the problem.

    All your suggestions and offerings were very helpfu.
