Hi I have one hen that is experiencing some discomfort, here's my story. About a week ago my husband noticed something hanging from the chickens bum, he being grossed out easily didn't think much of it or do anything so I started doing a bunch of research and found that she most likely had a prolapse. So we separated her from the others into a dark brooder. I didn't have time to look at her due to 2 jobs, so 2 nights ago Monday I finally took her into the bath and started to wash her underside with warm water although I still couldn't see anything just feel something extremely hard, she then started to peck at her backside and these white bugs fell out of her, I was so grossed out that I couldn't continue so I put her back in the brooder. Yesterday Tuesday I decided I couldn't give up on this chicken as she acted fine, so when I got home I couldn't believe what I saw, she had laid 2 eggs, one was still stuck to her bum I assume this was the hardness I felt the night before. I filled a large container with warm water and some peroxide and let he soak for a good 20 minutes, she wasn't thrilled but was a good girl. I then took her out to the yard and laid her on her back covering her head with a shirt, what I saw was a very infected prolapse and a ton of maggots inside of her chest cavity. I cleaned every maggot I could find and see out of her and rinsed her with warm water. Her prolapse was much smaller but looked infected it was black brownish, there was an open wound with white puss like stuff coming out so I cleaned that best I could and put honey on it, I then pushed it back in no problem. I then cleaned the brooder and gave her fresh bedding, water and food and a heat lamp for being wet in the garage. This morning she seemed uncomfortable just laying in the corner it also froze last night so maybe she was cold as well, yesterday before I did all this she was just fine as far as being alert and eating and drinking. I assume she has a bunch of cedar stuck to her bum. Tonight I was going to wash her off and pour some peroxide in the chest area then rinse with a warm water salt solution. Does this sound like she will be okay, I know we waited too long but am hoping for a good outcome. I was also going to get some swat from the tack store. Is her chest cavity supposed to be exposed like that, the skin is purple? I also feel like maybe I shouldn't have put an infected prolapse back in her, but I hope that either her body will heal it or push it back out. Any suggestions would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks!
