    [​IMG]My hen, named Six, is just 7 weeks old. Has started laying and yesterday, I noticed blood in the pen, after she laid one. At first I thought the protrusion from her vent was a prolapse, but I'm dubious. It is soft and looks like it's full of blood. I've been putting Prep H on it and icing it, to try and get it to shrink. Pushed it in a couple times, but maybe I'm not pushing it in far enough because she keeps pushing it back out.

    I've attached picutres from last night and this morning.

    Any help would be appreciated. I can't find anything anywhere about a vent hematoma.
