I have a flock of four 8 month old roosters that I received as chicks, and five 1 year old hens that I've had for 4 months. Its Ontario and they are in a small, well-insulated coop. No heat. No artificial light. They have a covered outside run, and I shovel paths through the snow for them - With 4 roosters I try to give the girls as much room as I can to get away! It's been really cold so they've been a little quieter, but nothing out of the ordinary. They still lay 3-4 eggs daily, and usually they are perfectly formed. About twice a month they give me a soft-shelled or paler egg. I check for eggs at least 3 times a day. In the coop this morning I noticed that someone laid an egg from the perch and it smashed to the floor and froze. Its happened twice in the past so I didn't think much of it. All of the chickens had gone outside to scratch. All seemed normal - cold, but normal. Tonight I found one of the hens on the perch in the coop with bloody icicles hanging from her vent. I brought her inside and slowly warmed her (It's -20C/ -5F outside today!). I gave her a lukewarm bath to remove frozen poop around her vent and gently pulled out an entire eggshell. It looked like a deflated tire. It too was frozen. With more gentle cleaning I was able to remove what appeared to be a chick! It was still not really formed....more of a bloody mass. Is that even possible?! I think her cloaca is prolapsed. Its slightly purplish in colour and I can't convince it to go back where it belongs. I'm not very aggressive when it comes to this sort of thing....Should I be? She doesn't appear to be distressed. She was bobbing her tail up and down while I bathed her. But while I was blow-drying her (she really enjoyed that spreading her wings out and fluffing up) she stopped bobbing her tail. She's pooped - a little loose, but not the worst I've seen. She's hungry and drinking water. I don't know if I should feed her as I don't want to encourage egg production or poop...But I can't starve the poor girl! I have her in the house in a dog kennel and blankets. I can't feel right about giving her wood shavings or straw when she's still oozing a bit of bloody discharge. Any advice?!
