    One of our girls was laying down I'm not looking right. We found this underneath her tail feathers. It doesn't look like a prolapse, what do you think it is and what can we do for her?
    Please and thanks!!





    Updates:



    We gave her 2 Tums pills and an epsom soak for an hour. She's having contractions.. so far egg hasn't moved up so we can at least see it.


    I thought it was egg bound... but that swelling isn't where the oviduct is. Wifey said she saw her crapping up a storm. Should I give her some milk of magnesia?[​IMG]

    Update.. I don't feel an egg, but she's super lethargic! :(

    She'll stand, but won't move and eat now.

    This sounds a lot like what happened to put Bluey. If you can, get her to a Vet ASAP as it could be an infection and with antibiotics she may have a fighting chance.

    Hope things improve soon

    It was kidney cancer. She had two hard masses. We put her down so she didn't suffer. :(
