Brahma's 1st egg

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
One of my blue partridge brahmas was trying to lay her first egg this morning. But it was stuck, with the large end coming out first. I carefully turned it and forced it out. Part of her vent (?) Was still hanging out. I pushed it in as much as I could, but it appears to be stretched somewhat. Will it return to normal? And do I need to be concerned about her surviving this?

The large end always comes out first. You probably shouldn't of forced it. Hopefully the swelling goes down. Some people use preparation H on things like that.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Thanks for the info. The only reason I forced it is because it was hanging out of her.

Look up 'prolapsed vent'.

Turning it was probably not a good idea.

Was it hanging out while she was walking around?

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

So the tissue was sticking out too?

Yeah, that sounds like a prolapse....you'll have to keep a close eye on her.
