Please help this newbie chick momma!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I just got home from work and went straight downstairs to check on my girls. I've had a couple of pasty butt problems, but have always been able to clear it up. Now this girl looks like she's having a major problem. She did have some soft poo sticking out so I soaked it off with some warm water. What do I do???

Make sure that it is the vent, and if it is that is a prolapsed vent or cloaca. Apply honey or hemorrhoid cream to the vent to help swelling decrease. Try to push the prolapse back in, and hold it there for a few minutes. It may come back out, but keep pushing it back in often. These chicks often don't make it, but hopefully this little one will with good care.

Thank you so much! I'll definitely try that and hope for the best!
