    I noticed today that one of my 3 year old hens who is laying a egg a day has a prolapsed vent.[​IMG] After reading on here I just want to double check and make sure I'm understanding everything to help her out.
    I need to put honey on it let it be there for 15 minutes and then try pushing it back in.
    Add apple cider vinegar to her water.
    Isolate her from the others.
    Bathe her backside in warm water 2 times a day before putting the honey on.
    Also should I keep her in our garage so her light is reduced?

    And is there anything else I should try?

    She's acting normal doesn't seem to be bothering her but I know I need to do something. The prolapse is slightly larger then a golf ball.

    Thanks.

    I just went back out and checked on her and it's back in. So now I'm really confused on how to treat her.
