    I have a hen that prolapsed. She is not doing well at all. I'm going to put her out of her misery. Can I feed her something?
    Like an overdose of melatonin in water or something?

    Please answer. I am not interested in hands on kills. I have looked up ways to keep her alive but for the most part I have read that they just prolapse again and it just prolongs the pain so please don't post with ways to save her.

    Thank you

    A trip to the vet to euthanaise is quite cheap if you are like me and can't bring yourself to swing an axe.

    Good luck, it is not nice watching them suffer
