I've been treating my 2yr old (today!!!) serama hen, Stig, for a prolapsed vent since Friday and have not seen an egg from her since Saturday evening (its now Thursday). I've been keeping her in a dark hospital pen in the house and tending to her vent once or twice a day with Preparation H and Tucks spray. She has progressed to the point where all I have to do is start cleaning her bottom and she pops her vent back in on her own. My concern is that ever since this whole issue started, she's been leaking a white fluid from her vent constantly. Its white and gritty, sticky, extremely hard to clean off and looks more like the "white poo" than egg white. It sticks to her feathers & she's constantly grooming. When I first brought her in, it took two really long baths and some super careful tweezer work to get the solidified crud off her vent and feathers (and it smelled awful!). The swelling and angry looking tissue in and around her vent was significantly better looking by that evening. This morning after our trip to the bathroom I put her down on the floor to get some exercise while I cleaned up. She walked around for a minute & then started squatting & grunting. Her vent popped out again, and around the time I started thinking, "Oh no! She's egg bound!" she dropped several small, hard, little... er... nuggets, and then went about her business like nothing happened. She is behaving, eating and drinking normally. Aside from the white, wet streaks of grossness, the other poops in her hospital pen look normal. I dont see any parasites or blood or anything that would be a cause for concern. I cant feel an egg anywhere in her abdomen and she's been in her dark hospital pen for almost a week (so not really expecting one). I'm beginning to wonder if her vent issue is tied to a digestive problem? Could she be constipated & pushing out her vent from the strain? I've been feeding her her normal pellets, a few mealworms once a day, a little scrambled egg w/ eggshells and yogurt (which she does not seem to care for) and I've been giving her vitamin water which she has access to at all times. Her vent stays in until she poops. Should I be doing something different? What is that white goo dripping from her vent? How do I stop it? GAH! Thanks!!
