One of my Dutch Bantams has developed a slight prolapsed vent and has thick, sticky white coming out of her behind. From what I understand this is urates?
I have taken her to where I got her from for a diagnosis to see if she is egg-bound and doesn't seem to be. She seems to be wanting to squeeze something out all the time, but nothing really comes out apart from the occassional poop. I have been cleaning her daily in warm soapy water to clear the gloop from her vent (also used a syringe as a quirting device) and noticed that there may be worms involved, so have wormed her and the whole flock. Also tried the oil around the prolapse to ease whatever the blockage might be, to no avail
She seems to be eating and drinking normally, is perky, bright-eyed, and certianly runs fast when I try and catch her for her bath time. This has been going on for about 4 days now and there doesn't seem to be any improvement. She keeps trying to preen herself at the back, but because it's so messy she just ends up getting her beak covered in 'matter'! She doesn't hang around with my other bantams as much as she used to.
Any suggestions as to what else I can do, as I am at total loss?!
