    Help, prolapse? something else?

    warning; photos below One of my moms birds has an issue, a few days ago she had a small protrusion that she thought was a prolapse. The tissue would not go back in, she used some medications on it, soaked it, the chicken stayed in the house for a few days, was eating fine, pooping fine...

    Prolapsed hen with purple comb and drooping wing

    I have a 5 month old Buff Orpington who prolapsed on Friday 1/22. She also had 2 eggs in her. A friend of ours told us we needed to push the prolapse and the egg that we could see back in, as we started to do so she strain and the egg popped out and shortly after another egg followed. We believe...

    Prolapsed Young Chicken

    I have a 5 month old Buff Orpington who prolapsed 3 days ago. We were able to reinsert the prolapsed and it stays until she poops. We withheld food for 24 hour to try and help this. She went about 5 hours without prolapsing but then she pooped and it happened all over again. I’m concerned that...

    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...

    Prolapse Vent

    Okay. I’m very new to raising chickens. I have 6 chicken, they are all starting to lay about 20-24 weeks of age. 2 amberlinks, 2 barred rocks, and 2 red sex links. Two days ago I noticed some weird behavior from my one of the amber link. Going into the 3 nesting boxes, sitting, then standing...

    Is this severe vent gleet?

    This started a few weeks ago with my hen. I noticed she was smelly so I took a look at her vent and noticed some cheese/egg looking substance crusted on/around her vent. I cleaned it off and after learning about vent gleet I applied anti-fungal cream. She was fine for a while but now it has come...

    Is this a Prolapse?

    I have a three year old Old English Bantam hen - the photo of her I've attached is for reference but not from today - who started laying again last week after a several month pause. Her last egg was the day before yesterday and was intact but had a rough shell. Yesterday she went into her...

    Prolapse vent with scab?

    I’m dealing with our first prolapse and we’re on day 3. She still seems fine except for the prolapse (perky, wanting food, etc). I’ve been doing all the stuff: soak. Epsom. Sugar. Hydrocortisone. Vetricyn. It will stay in a bit longer now, but it still pops out when she poops. It was initially...

    Egg bound and prolapse, cut out egg, need help finishing

    This would have been her very first egg. Completely egg bound and prolapsed. Couldn’t find any hole from which to remove egg (soft shell) so I cut it out. Now I can’t tell what remaining parts are egg stuffs and what parts are her oviduct. Got her cleaned up as much as possible and tried to...

    Problem chick

    I have a 7-8 day old chicken that seems to be smaller than the rest of the bunch. She is very uncoordinated and seems to zone out and stand still for up to 2 minutes often not aware of her surrounding and roams from the group and her mother. She has pasty butt that we are cleaning but it looks...

    I lost my first hen today

    How do I prevent this from happening again? I’ll post photos when I get them, but my spouse just called to say he found our Welsummer (one of seven in a mixed-breed flock) deceased not more than an hour after I checked on them before leaving for work. She was 15 months old and one of two...

    Please help! Is this a prolapsed vent?

    This poult unfortunately came down with vent gleet quite young. I finished treating that about a month ago, but her vent has kept needing constant applications of vaseline or neosporin otherwise it gets crusty/scabby. I realized I don't know what a "healthy" vent is supposed to look...

    Swollen vent, possible prolapse

    We just got six pollutes last week, and one of them has recently been having problems with her vent. I thought it was pasty butt at first, so I very carefully cleaned her up and made sure to check up on her. Her vent is now swollen and she's having trouble pooping. She squats and holds her wings...
