    Prolapse that feels like shredded tissue...

    My 2 year old Sapphire Gem had a huge prolapse that may have broke as she expelled clots once I had her in warm water. It won't stay inside - so now she is in a dark area. We have NO vets for birds within at least 100 miles. I am feeding corn, vitamin water and gave her an Antibiotic orally...
