I only just noticed today that our australorp hen has swollen eyes. My husband said he thought she was just old. So who knows how long it's been swollen. I only just noticed it today. She usually just hangs around a small area near the coop. There doesn't seem to be any discharge or wheezing. What could this be? Thanks!

She has sinus swelling. Possibly it is viral but unfortunately poultry sinuses do not self drain very well and any mucus causes swelling and generally leads to infection.
A vet visit and prescription antibiotics will give her best chance for recovery.
