Middle of June one of my hens escaped from the run and I had a very hard time catching her, she kept hiding under things and when I finally caught her i realized her odd behavior was due to a cloacal prolapse. I put her in a dog crate in the garage and for three days i bathed her twice daily and applied honey/prep H I also have her antibiotic chick feed because I couldn't find any chicken antibiotics and I put some baby vitamins in her water. I also gave her small treats of yoghurt and fresh fruit that she ate right up. In 3 days she was back with her coop mates, no problems. Today I went out to water the chickens and she was in the coop, by herself on top of a roost. When she turned around I saw that she had prolapsed again (same size, about a half dollar) but this time she's bleeding a bit. To clarify: there is evidence of blood on her backside, however she herself is not bleeding that I could tell. I assume her coop-mates have been picking her backside. What should I do this time? I worry because of the blood, clearly there is an injury somewhere, is there anything i should do differently than last time? Also, do you think she's going to keep prolapsing like this? Last time she was egg bound(it was a MASSIVE egg), and I believe she is again because I can see her motioning like she's trying to lay an egg but can't. My plan of action is to get her into a warm water bath and wash her with some gentle shampoo and figure out what the cause of this is. She's the only one in the 18 months i have had chickens that has gotten egg bound and now she's done it twice! But because she's the only one affected I don't think it's a nutrition thing unless she's not eating which isn't likely because she's the bully! Any idea why she's prolapsing? Anything I can do to keep her from prolapsing again? What should I do about the possible injury? What should I do if she's NOT egg bound? Thank you so much for any advice! I'm off to bathe my chicken.
