Hen Hemorrhoids?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I have a hen who has what looks like a hemorrhoid right next to her vent. It's swollen and bloody. Maybe it's an infected follicle? Can anyone point me in the right direction by telling me what this *might* be? Thanks so much.

Seriously though, is it possible that it's a prolasped vent, or is it not that bad? If you can get her to stand still long enough, pics might help some of the cleverer members than myself?

Sounds like a prolapse. You want to clean her off with bedadine wash , apply hemroid cream or honey to the area and try and push it carefully back in. Put her in a clean, dark area with food and water by herself. Other chickens would start pecking at her. Hopefully it will go back with little help.

Thank you! That's exactly the problem. I've read up on it, and we are trying to help her. Unfortunately, it keeps popping back out. Fortunately, the swelling has lessened.

Yes, it's a prolapse. Have you separated her from the flock? The other hens will peck her to death if they see it. I successfully kept a prolapse back in using honey - not only is it sticky and has natural antibacterial components, but it's hydrophobic - it pulls out moisture and keeps the air dry (counter-intuitive, but it works!) You can see what I did on this blog entry:

I tried to clean off the prolapse and carefully push it back in.
As I did she bared down and it popped and her intestines came flying out.
She started to bleed and I could here free air. I had my husband
Carefully and lovingly put her out of her misery. I feel very bad I failed at
This. I don't think she had much if a chance so it
was the only thing I could try. The prolapse was the size
Of my fist. So sad I lost my "Dino Bird"

Nothing. Thankfully my other girls are
Doing well. Thanks for info and support
