?intestines fell out of my hen please help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi I am posting because I went out to feed my girls tonight and my beautiful white hen had two large sacks, about the size of a golf ball each, hanging out of her behind. My husband helped me to put her out of her suffering but I am worried that she could have been ill and I may loose my other girls please help

She may have had a prolapsed vent or cloaca. It can occur from straining to lay a large egg, but it doesn't always occur with a stuck egg. Did you examine or cut open the sacks? I'm sorry for your loss.

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
