I have a hen that her vent is sticking out, was a little bloody also. She seems kinda sluggish but not bad. We cleaned her up and isolated her.

Do a search for vent prolapse.

post #3 of 3

Can you post a picture of her vent?Other hens will peck at her vent while it is protruding, so keep her away or separated in a cage while she recovers. Apply some honey or Preparation H cream to the vent to help reduce swelling. Then try to push the red prolapse back inside. It may come back out, but keep pushing it back in. It is also good to keep her cage dark for 116 hours at night to stop her from laying, and reduce her feed (but not water)  somewhat.Here is some reading for you:
