Vent Prolapse

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Yesterday I found a bloodied egg,  and I found my girl Boo had a lot of bloody feathers around her vent.  I bathed her in warm water to clean her off,  I trimmed off the wort of the matted and soiled feathers.   Shes not showing any real stress, she was running around acting normal.  I've isolated her in a container, shes got water, I've got her set up with food (greens, grapes, bean sprouts, and some calcium).  I've been pushing the prolapse in and treating it with preperation H but the prolapse doesnt seem to want to stay in.  

 

I'm worried cause Boo is one of my favorite chickens

 

I took some pics, sorry for the quality

 

 


Is there anything else I can do?

I think that what you are doing is great. Do you happen to have ducks? The same thing happened to one of my females and it was from a drake that believed he was a rooster. I had to get rid of him. 

Hope she will get better soon.

My chicken (Cluck) had that last year. We tried EVERYTHING!! Eventually we decided to just let her be, because, she (as you said) was acting normal. We washed it every other day and eventually her prolapsed vent just disappeared. I don't know if that's normal but it worked for me.Good luck!

Thanks everyone I am doing my best but I worry. This morning I took Boo out of isolation, the other girls are still in the coop, I felt she could use som fresh air and sun as well as a chance to stretch her legs



She walked arround for about an hour and ate 6 grapes

I also took a pic of her vent. I tried cleaning her a bit



This is before treatment this morning. shes seems to be pooping but her condition means only a little at a time comes out. I think the black marks are scabs from either the trauma of the blooded egg or pecking from the other girls before I found her


I've been pushing the prolapse back in and treating it, its not as dark and swollen as before but the relative lack of poop has me worried


Ohh and no we dont have any ducks, or any roosters
