    we removed the egg, it was hanging out of the chickens vent but covered in a membrane of sorts, after removing the egg part of the chicken still is hanging out of the vent, she seems fine, eating and scratching - what is this, can we help her??

    Sounds like prolapse, but I'm not very knowledgeable about this. I'll at least bump you up. Good luck! [​IMG]

    I'd use search for "prolapse", that might be the problem, but I'm not very experienced.
