    Sorry I was creeping on this thread and I had to interfere. I ordered 6 day old female chicks from MPC, and they all grew up to be just that. From the straight run I got 3 hens and 2 roos. I think MPC is great, although the minimum (depending on where you live) can be a bit higher than you'd...

    URGENT! AUSTRALORP FEMALE BLEEDING!!

    She is doing a lot better now. I managed to get the prolapse to stay in and she’s been walking around, eating, and pooping. So far everything has gone well. :)

    And to get her to eat? Will she eat on her own eventually?

    URGENT! AUSTRALORP FEMALE BLEEDING!!

    A few last questions. She wants to be out with her flock so when should i put her back? Also, I haven’t seen her eat normal chicken feed but she’s eaten kale, and only poked at egg. What can i do to get her to eat again? Haven’t seen any poops also.

    URGENT! AUSTRALORP FEMALE BLEEDING!!

    Thank you. I do have hopes to become an avian vet later on. She walked around this morning and seems to be doing better. I checked her vent and it looks normal. :) When I get back home i’ll give her some fruits and veggies. Also, it’s still decently cold outside, should i let her out for a bit...

    URGENT! AUSTRALORP FEMALE BLEEDING!!

    Thank you everyone. Not sure if she has eaten yet but i’ve seen her drink water. I’ll try to get a picture of her later. Again, thank you so much, I don’t know if she’d be okay if it weren’t for you guys. Should i cover her cage at night?

    No, the bleeding has stopped and she is sleeping. Also the vent looks completely normal. Poor baby is so tired. I’ll keep her inside until everything is healed. So if it comes back out i put it back in and can put vaseline around it? I’ll tell my dad about the medicine because he knows more...

    URGENT! AUSTRALORP FEMALE BLEEDING!!

    I felt around, no eggshells. It was all just squishy and soft. I was able to gently put everything back inside of her without her pushing it out for like 15 minutes. I hope it stays in though. I’ll try giving her the tums, she seems to be in a lot better condition. Is there anything else i can...

    URGENT! AUSTRALORP FEMALE BLEEDING!!

    And yes, i think it is highly likely she was trying to lay an egg because i haven’t gotten eggs for a while now. I was thinking of the possibility of a prolapsed vent as well?

    URGENT! AUSTRALORP FEMALE BLEEDING!!

    I don’t have any rubbery gloves as you described, only the cheap plastic kind, will that be ok? My parents won’t be home until tomorrow evening so there’s no way for me to go out and get them. Should i give her a warm bath before to get the blood off her vent? I’m afraid of hurting her i will...

    HEN WITH SWOLLEN EYE

    I haven’t applied anything yet, but her eye seems to be healing. She blinks now and the swelling has gone down, she also moves the pupil. Should I still apply the neosporin?
