    My chicken has 2 lumps under the skin of her eye. She has no other symptoms, she's otherwise a happy chicken :) the lumps are firm and don't seem *****. I've washed them with saline to. They took about a month to come up... Anyone got any ideas as to what it may be? Thanks :)

    Sorry, the thing in her eye in pic is just grass, I washed it out. There doesn't seem to be any thing stuck in her eye, there are 2 lumps, one above the other, the top one came up first then the other grew....

    Are they blisters ?, from something rubbing on her eyeball .
    It looks very painful .

    I saw another chicken like this and it turned out to be a bee sting or insect bite.

    That looks extremely painful. I hope Energyvet is right in that it might just be a bee sting.
    Could it be a Chalazion?

    EDIT:
    Ya know... Come to think of it, that looks a lot like a cyst.
