She has a prolapsed vent. Someone will be along to tell you how best to treat it.Does anyone know what this condition is? (see pic). Do you know what I can do to help my chicken?
ThanksShe has a prolapsed vent. Someone will be along to tell you how best to treat it.
In the meantime, isolate her from the rest of the flock so the others don't peck the tissue. The tissue should be kept moist until you treat her which will involve a warm soak and gently pushing the prolapse back in.
Interestingly, our hen’s symptoms have disappeared. She seemed fine all day. By the time I got home from work, and conducted a full exam, she seemed really good. Her vent looked clean and pink. I did notice she layed her egg later in the day than usual. But other than that she seems fine. I’ll keep an eye on her but if anyone has any other thoughts I’d appreciate it.Let us know how it goes. And true you will very possibly have to repeat the process more than once before it stays. If it continues for days other things you can do to help.
