    Vent Gleet or Something Else?

    This is my first time raising chicks; I work at a farm so we're raising around 300 which are about five weeks old now. Some of the chicks have this whitish clumping stuff on their butts. I'm not sure if it's diarrhea or something else or if it's related to feather wounds (we've had some issues...

    Mysteriously Messy Bum

    Everyone knows that one of the telltale signs of a healthy hen is a nice fluffy bottom. I recently noticed my 21 month old ISA brown hen has a weirdly messy bottom. Here's the thing: it's not right around her vent but actually under it by a couple inches. Upon checking her vent itself, it looked...

    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...

    Hi Folks, I am hoping that someone can help me in regard to a rescue hen that I've had for about 5 weeks now. I picked up 4 hens from a British Hen Rescue Trust a few weeks ago. All of the hens were in a terrible condition, dehydrated, lots of bald patches, feather loss and long toe nails. I...

    Rooster with REALLY Bad Vent Gleet!

    My nine-week-old French Black Copper Marans Roo has not been looking good. He had Coccidiosis a few weeks ago and has been treated. Yesterday we noticed that he has a bunch of yellowish-white stuff stuck to the vent feathers. We quarantined him away from the flock. He's not eating and isn't...

    Vent Gleet Help!!

    Hi all. So I have a 2-year-old Partridge Olive Egger hen who has had chronic diarrhea for at least the last couple of months. It almost comes out in a stream and her vent is almost always dirty. At first I thought that that was just her, but after a little more research, I’m pretty sure she has...

    Hello, This is our first time with meat birds (but we’ve had laying hens for a few years). We have 40 Cornish Giants and they’re 4.5 weeks old living their best life in a couple pastured chicken tractors. The other day I discovered one male was getting picked on and his butt was bloody. He’s...

    Suspected Vent Gleet advice please

    Hello, I got 4 ex batts 5 weeks ago and a day after they arrived, three seemed to turn on one hen. She went up and sat on top of the coop a lot to stay out of their way and I noticed whenever she tried to eat or drink she would be chased away by any of the other three. I used to stand at one of...

    Vent Gleet

    Could this be vent gleet ? We removed her from the flock last night because she just keeps losing feathers and has hardly any feathers near her vent and it’s very red there too. She has very poopy feathers around there too, we trimmed those feathers with scissors last night. There’s nothing...

    What is wrong with one week old gosling vent

    I have a gosling that is one week old with a dirty vent. I’ve bathed her twice now. She eats drinks and poops the typical liquidy brown poop but vent stays sort of poopy all the time and there is a small bald patch right above it. I’ve attached a photo. Is this normal? What does a normal vent...

    Fly strike and Vent Gleet **GRAPHIC PICS**

    Hey y’all, I have a couple sick hens: Pepper is a redstar about 4 years old and Buttercup is a golden campine about 3 years old. I noticed that both of them are lethargic, not eating, and have poop smeared all over their vent area. I assumed they had vent gleet so I put probiotics in their...

    Help Please...

    Hello, I have a chicken I have been treating for vent gleet and she is doing much better with the exception of her legs. We adopted her from a local chicken farmer and when she came to us we noticed that she was always sitting low to the ground. I believe this is how she eventually ended up with...
