Need help. Chicken with egg coming out?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
One of my hens has what I think is an egg hanging out. She had been isolating herself today and has been lethargic. What can I do? It almost looks like a worm but it's not moving.

Looks like prolapse. Put her in a warm bath, let her relax... see if you can gently push it in or work the egg out. Lmk. I don't understand why it's white though. Can you get a closer picture?

Otherwise could it be some sort of intestine? Is it pink at all?

Okay. It came out and she is getting a little more active. I got her some yogurt and scratch and she seems better. She is my hen who hasn't laid an egg. Maybe she has something wrong? Can I give her anything else to keep it from happening again?

What did the egg look like? I wonder if it was just a funny egg. Did it have a shell? She may be fine if that's the case. You get those weird eggs at first.

I can't find it. I've been looking all over.

Do you remember seeing it? If not, that probably was the egg and she may be fine.
