This is not going to sound good... warning.... but one of our "older" chickens has been bleeding from the other end. Husband first noticed the bleed, but she herself has not been able to clean the situation and the blood had dried (along with some feces). Now I don't think it is abnormal to see a bit of blood on an egg, or after the hen having an egg. But this was different, more of a continual bleed, and hunsband was concerned of her feathers being wet and sticky with blood, and being cold at night. So we went under a cleaning operation with some luke warm water, dish gloves, and a hair dryer (set on low). We're in the winter months, and we we trying to avoid her getting cold, so we wanted to make sure she was dry. During our cleaning operation, we were able to get a closer inspection of the area. I am not a vet, I don't know what it was under there, but to describe it was like a pertrusion of some sort. We felt horrible for her, and the bleeding... was still bleeding. What do you think??? Have you seen this before?
