Yesterday, I found a bloody egg from my Easter Egger who just started laying about 3 days ago. I read that it can happen with new layers, so I didn't really worry. Today, I came home to more blood in the nest box and caught another girl pecking at her bloody vent. I removed her from the group and took a better look. There is blood mixed with an opaque white discharge dripping from her vent. I gave her a warm bath with Epsom salt and blew her dry. Put some yeast cream around and in her vent area. Keeping her indoors by herself tonight. Started yogurt along with a side of oyster shell for calcium. Added electrolytes and probiotics to her water. Ideas?
Gleet or prolapse?
That is not vent gleet, but she has probably had a prolapse that was pecked at. The white is urine. Remove her temporarily from the others. Clean her vent every day with a shallow bath, and apply honey, sugar, or Preparation H cream to her vent to reduce swelling. Try to push the pink tissue back inside, holding it in for a few minutes, even though it may come back out. If you can keep her in a dark room or covered cage for 16 hours every night, she will eventually stop laying temporarily in a couple of days. That would be good to help her vent to heal. Good luck.
