I was out feeding the birds and just happened to scoop up one of my barred rocks and I noticed her eye seemed swollen up top. Or maybe her head is swollen from a peck? I didn't see any obvious trauma. I tried to get pics of each side. Some aren't too clear though.

I would say wash it out and use ointment type antibiotics if it doesn't get better in the next day or so

Totally forgot to reply to this earlier! Her eye looks so much better. It's so hard with 4 barred rock girls because they are identical. I had figure out which one it was. She had a deer tick imbedded in her head this afternoon but when I went to find it now that my husband is home and I have help I don't see it. Could one of the other birds have eaten it off of her? It wasn't big and fat yet.
