    I agree, it sounds like a prolapse.

    I gently pushed it back in with my finger and she is ok now. Poor baby. Their diet is good, green and scratch and laying pellets. so just a hitch I guess. I also need to get feather Fixer too. Some of my girls are stuck in mid molt and are missing feathers on their bellies and one has no feathers on her chest. Our weather here in california is wacked so i am sure it's affecting alot of flocks.

    Thanks again for the links to the prolapse info.

    Also, make sure they do not have any lice or mites. That can cause the feathers to look bad and not regrow.

    It can happen again I have read and if they peck it, they can pull the ovaries out too (blowout) so if it keeps happening definitely separate her.
