Here I am again with another piece to the puzzling condition of my 5 1/2 old big buff rock hen. (I posted last week but can't find the post) so to summarize: The beginning: blood on the poop board (no poop, some tissue) squishy, bloated belly falling, off balance yet eating and drinking INITIAL TREATMENT: brought inside home for 2 days warm bath yogurt apple cider vinegar in water RESULT: finally laid an egg (2nd ever) walking okay put back into coop END OF NEXT DAY: Her bottom around her vent is plucked clean. It is not red, but still squishy. (I don't know if the squishy big bottom is typical of a large hen) I've read a lot of threads concerning bare bottoms, but found no answers though it happens a lot. It's getting cold now, wondering if she needs extra protection and if there is something anyone can tell me the about her plucked behind and what to do about it. Thanks!
