Young hen with the flesh around her eye swollen and redder

One of our young hens, Buff Sussex, has both sides of face affected and looking different to usual. The usual red rim around the eyes is larger and a little swollen. She is a bit less energetic but is still eating , pooing, drinking. What do you think is wrong?
