I've searched all over the Internet looking for an answer I have a broody Buff Orpington .... and yesterday I noticed right above her vent is really bloody. Yesterday I thought it was her vent ... so I was thinking a popped blood vessel .... but upon closer look a few minutes ago, it seems like it's the base of her tail feathers (above her vent). She won't come out of her nesting box ... I was going to isolate her last night. She's eating (when out of her box) ... and acting like a bratty broody girl. Any ideas what could be wrong??? Seems like a strange area to suddenly be bleeding from.
