    Hey girl! Not again right? Do what Jesus freak suggested. Clean it put prep H on it and gently try to manipulate it back in! It's almost never too late to try! Hawk is much better tonight! You say money is not an issue...call ANY Vet. Ask him or her to pull out their Vet Manuel and look. They don't have to be a chicken specialist to give it a college try! It will probably cost but if she's that important u can't put a price on love. If u have a good reliable vet that u have been going to for awhile they ought to be willing to try! I'm so sorry! Let us know if she makes it. I'll say a prayer for her and for you.

    She keeps on trying to push the prolapse out. She'll crouch down like she's trying to lay an egg and push it out, but it doesn't stay out, it goes back in, so I don't know what to push back in. She still isn't eating or drinking. Trying to find a vet for her.

    I was wondering if I should wrap it to try and get her to not push it out?

    suggestion:

    she could be pushing so hard to lay an egg! sometimes when i see one of my hens lay an egg, there is red tissue surrounding the egg all the way around the egg, until the entire egg has emerged (surrounded by tissue) then the tissue retracts and the egg comes out! maybe she is doing this but is too small to pass the egg? try a warm bath and soak her bum, the heat could help with softening things up and opening/ relaxation. try to lubricate the opening! can you feel the mass that gets pushed out when she pushes? Is it hard/ soft squishy???

    here is a picture of what an emerging egg could look like, for reference. [​IMG]
