    We let the chickens out this morning and now we find one hen with stuff hanging out. To me it looks like poop and there is a lot of blood. I was unable to load video since it was too large. Anyone know how I can downscale the video? I'm using an iPhone 5s

    She is walking around but staying by coop. She is not lethargic.
     
  10. yea, but that is a prolapse... she will be cannabalised..... the most humane thing to do a seperate her. and probably cull her, sorry
