My husband and I came home yesterday to find one of our young hens dead on the coop floor, a blood-streaked egg beside her. Her rear was bloody, but we couldn't really tell if any "innards" were out, or had been out...it just looked bloody. Was this a prolapse? I feel horrible, but I couldn't have been home to help her. My flock (of now 10) is just over 6 months old and have just started laying. I've been scanning other entries on prolapse and egg-bound conditions so maybe I'll know what to look for if it anything happens to another hen and I'm home.
