I have a lacy wing windotte hen with what is left of a blocked vent. I cleared the blocked egg yesterday and she then dropped two more eggs. Today her vent area looks bad and is covered with "stuff". I have been soaking her in warm water w/epson salts to try and clean all the "stuff" off. My question is that her vent is still sticking out and has what looks like some dried white and yellowish brown crud all around the end. Is this dried fluids that will soak off and if so do I try to get them off before I try to push her vent back up inside?
