Young hen with prolapse

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I have a 7 week old jumbo brown hen that appears to have a prolapse. I did get an egg from that cage today, so I suspect it came from her. Poor thing must have had a heck of a time with it. It there any hope? Or should I simply put her out of her misery?

Thanks.

Correction......   she's not the one who layed the egg. There's an egg stuck IN the prolapse!  Ouch!

Nevermind. She didn't make it.

I euthanize any bird that prolapses typically. Even if youre able to fix the initial prolapse it will just continue to happen until it finally does kill them.
