    Please help. This is the first time I've had problems with my chickens. I went to watch the girls this morning and saw blood on one of my dominiques. I seep rated her so the other girls didn't see the blood. But I'll not sure what's wrong or what I need to do! I have a pic but it's graphic so I am sorry about that! [​IMG]

    It also looks as if her flockmates have been pecking her as well, which is characteristic of them.
    She needs to stay separated from the rest until she's healed.
    I would advise cleaning again. Look for maggots, cuts, etc. This also could be flystrike.
    Check to see if the vent is indeed prolapsed.
    If it is, get some Preparation H and a rubber glove and try to get the vent back in. Very gently with your pinky finger.
    Vetericyn spray will help as well with open sores.
    Keep us posted and good luck.
