Hi all


I have a two year old Australorp hen with came on suddenly two days ago

I noticed blood on the egg she layed two days ago so I immediately checked her back end and sure enough there was a some felshy stuff hanging out of her vent.

I washed the protrusion and used Vaseline to put It back in place

The next morning I checked her and she was fine and all looked good and healthy

However this morning I checked her again and she has layed another egg which had a bit of blood on it also but not as much as the first one

She now has something protruding from her vent again but it is like a string with white poo like stuff  on it and the string breaks easily so I assume it cant be part of her insides

Any ideas what it is and what I can do to help her?

She is fine otherwise and is scratching around in the garden

I will try and get some photos at some stage but she is rather flighty and hard to catch
