    For goodness sake! I've lost 2 of my girls to some unknown wasting illness, one to a fox & have just found one of them with, what looks like a prolapsed egg vent! Didn't think keeping chickens was supposed to be this stressful (& expensive!) Off to the vets soon with the prolapse, atm she is in a separate coop, looking all sorry for herself. :(

    I've not even had them for a year yet.

    I've had a rough two weeks with my girls that I've also only had for a few months. One had a prolapse. I thought I was going to have to cull her but the warm soapy bathes (antibacterial dawn) and prep H did wonders. I had tried the honey first, but with no luck. It did take a few days. Keep her in a dark area and limit her food so she doesn't lay and gets some time to heal. Good luck!
